3 arrested in stabbing of East Stroudsburg student

EAST STROUDSBURG, Pa. - Three people have been arrested and charged in an attack that injured an East Stroudsburg University student, the school announced.

ESU previously said Tuesday morning that six people were charged in the attack. The school has since issued an update saying six suspects have been identified, but only three have been arrested and charged so far.

The school said none of the suspects are ESU students. Police did not release any details.

Shaquwan Davis-Boone, 19, was stabbed and injured on Jan. 31 when he was walking home from the gym. He told investigators several people came up to him and they got into a physical altercation.

Police said Davis-Boone was stabbed once in the back and once in the side. He was taken to a local hospital for his injuries.

ESU said they are organizing a town hall meeting for campus constituents to meet with local law enforcement officials to discuss crime affecting the campus community. Details about that will be released shortly.

The school also stressed that all safety and security measures on campus will continue.
