(MUNCIE) - A Ball State University student is out of the hospital after being stabbed during a robbery attempt on the Muncie campus.

University spokeswoman Joan Todd says the student took himself to a hospital after the stabbing late Saturday and he was released after treatment there. She didn't release the student's name.

Todd says the would-be robber accosted the student in a parking lot near Worthen Arena and tried unsuccessfully to take the student's wallet. That's when the stabbing occurred.

The suspect remained at large Sunday. He was described as a white male with a tan hoodie.

She says the university sent out a public safety notice by email notifying the campus community of the incident.

Todd says Ball State encourages students not to travel alone.
