Three people have been taken to hospital after a stabbing at the Australian National University in Canberra.
ACT policing and ACT ambulance services were called to the campus at around 2.45pm on Monday following reports of a stabbing incident.
Of the three people transported to hospital, two had stab wounds and a third person was allegedly assaulted.
One person was in custody, and no other people were being sought, ACT policing said.
Students and staff were being urged by the university to stay away from Fellows Oval near the Chifley Library, though there was not a direct threat to the community.
“Police are at the scene and have the situation under control, with an individual in custody,” ANU said.
ACT policing urged any witnesses who hadn’t already spoken to police to come forward.
Federal member for Canberra Alicia Payne said she was “thinking of all ANU staff and students”.
“Hope everyone is ok,” she posted on social media.
