A Stanislaus State student was arrested Tuesday after stabbing two of her dorm roommates and injuring two resident advisors, the University Police Department reported.

The student was identified as Jasmyne Casey, 21, of Oakland. She was arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon.

The two female residents suffered lacerations from the kitchen knife and scissors used in the assault. The injuries were considered non-life threatening and both of the women were treated at area hospitals and released.

The two resident advisors sustained scratches and bruises when they intervened and tried to stop the assault in the Residence Life Village dorms.

The University Police Department stated Casey was treated at an area hospital Tuesday night and booked into Stanislaus County Jail on Wednesday.

There is no known motive for the attack at this time but the investigation is ongoing. This appears to be an isolated incident and there is no further threat to the campus community, according to the University Police Department.

Stanislaus State President Ellen Junn stated she wanted to reassure the students, faculty and staff that this situation was contained very quickly thanks to the University Police and local police, and that the safety of everyone on campus has been restored.

“While this is a serious and frightening incident, law enforcement authorities are continuously monitoring the situation, and there is no further danger to any students or community members,” Junn stated in a news release. “Psychological counseling services will be available for all students in the residence halls and others who may need support or reassurance.”
