Cincinnati man accused in knife attack at Transylvania University

The Lexington-Herald Leader, quoting police chief Mark Barnard, reports that the assailant was thought to be a former student.

A student who witnessed the event told the news station the man may have been inspired by politics in carrying out his machete attack. "She said, 'Republican.' He said, 'Okay, ' then asked some other girl".

Mitchell Adkins was armed with a bag of knives when he entered the Glenn Building Friday morning, Lexington Police said. By that time, some of my friends were running out and yelling for us to leave, and I tried to stay behind to see if. He said the assailant was taken to the hospital to be evaluated.

Lexington police said campus police officers acted swiftly to subdue Adkins before he could harm anyone else.

"A guy came in, banged something, a hatchet or an axe, on the table and said "the day of reckoning has come, '" Tristan Reynolds told the newspaper".

"She's in stable condition at a local hospital", said Michele Sparks, a spokeswoman for the liberal-arts college in Lexington, Ky.

The university canceled classes for the rest of the day but remains open and has provided counselors for students and others seeking help.

Transylvania University campus police were able to take Adkins into custody following a struggle.
