State police in Lancaster made an arrest and are searching for a second person after a student at Thaddeus Stevens College was stabbed in the hand.

According to officials, the 19-year-old victim was in his dorm room in the 700 block of East King Street, Lancaster City on Thursday around 11:50 p.m.
