LU student fights off, stabs two attackers
BEAUMONT - A Lamar University student single-handedly fought off three attackers who tried to rob him on campus Sunday night.
Authorities say the student came out of Campbell Hall and was walking to his truck when three men approached him and asked if he had marijuana.
He said 'no.' Then the men tackled him. One said he had a gun.
The student managed to pull a knife from his pocket and stab one of the attackers. After he got on his feet the men tried to grab him again and he stabbed a second attacker.
The men ran away.
Lamar police arrested all three. One had to be taken to a hospital for treatment.
The student wasn't seriously hurt
