A sidewalk in front of a University of California at Berkeley residential hall was briefly taped off by Berkeley police Thursday afternoon after a stabbing victim wandered up to the student housing area, a campus official said. Around 2:30 p.m. the Martinez Commons residential hall sidewalk was blocked off after Berkeley police responded to a stabbing victim who was dripping blood near the student housing area, said Marty Takimoto, a spokesman for UC Berkeley housing.
The victim had been stabbed about a half block away from the hall, located on Channing Way at Telegraph Avenue, and wandered up in front of the residential hall courtyard leaving a trail of blood, Takimoto said. Emergency responders transported the victim to a hospital and police closed off the sidewalk for about 15 minutes to investigate, according to Takimoto. Information about the stabbing was not immediately available from Berkeley police. Takimoto said the victim was not affiliated with UC Berkeley.
