EAST BRUNSWICK, N.J., Feb. 22 (UPI) -- Two Rutgers University students were stabbed during an altercation with a New Jersey man after he was told he could not enter a fraternity house, police said.

A Rutgers Police Department spokesman said one of the victims flagged down a campus police cruiser early Saturday, telling the officers he had been stabbed in the leg, the East Brunswick Home News Tribune, reported Tuesday.

Officers arrested Tyrrell L. Brown, 21, of Highland Park, who is not a Rutgers student, Lt. Rich Dinan said.

The stabbings occurred after Brown was denied entry into the Zeta Psi fraternity house, Dinan said.

A second victim was treated at a hospital with a stab wound to the arm.

Brown was charged with aggravated assault, weapons offenses and possession of marijuana.

The weapon, a folding knife, was recovered, police said.

Zeta Psi is not registered with the university as a formally recognized campus fraternity, the Home News Tribune reported.
