A man has been knifed at Warwick University in an alleged ‘love triangle row’.

Armed police swooped in on Sherbourne Halls of Residence after a teenager, 19, was stabbed on Wednesday.

A man, 18, and a woman, 18, have been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder.

The victim was raced to hospital around 4.30pm but his injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.

A source speaking to The Sun claims the victim went to the flat to meet a girl – but was attacked by another man.

They said: ‘Apparently there was blood everywhere. Her flatmates had heard him screaming, then they saw what had happened and called campus security.’

The university assured first year students and staff ‘there is ‘no danger’ in a statement today.

The two arrested were questioned by officers this morning.
