MANKATO, Minn. (KMSP) -

A Minnesota State University-Mankato student was attacked at knifepoint by another student Wednesday night in a library bathroom.

The attack was reported around 7:15 p.m. inside MSU's Memorial Library. Investigators still are not sure what led to the attack in the men's bathroom on the third floor.

According to police, the student was able to defend himself and escape. He was taken to an area hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Other students at the library during the assault were able to detain 19-year-old Kevin Renquist, of Bloomington, until police arrived. He is currently behind bars.

Charges of second-degree assault and terroristic threats are being considered by the Blue Earth County Prosecutor, and could come down as soon as Friday morning. 

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Department of Public Safety at 507-387-8780.

    When he's not slaying three-headed beasts with his olive-wood club, Hercules carves out time for the little people. Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson treated fans from the Harlem Boys and Girls Club and Big Brothers Big Sisters NYC to an advance screening of his new film. I caught up with the larger-than-life action hero after the big surprise.

    Making New York City more energy efficient

    More than half the population of New York City rides public transportation to work. No other metropolis in this country even approaches that percentage or the MTA's total number of riders. For that reason, New York likely ranks as the most energy-efficient city in the nation. But what would it take to make the city even more energy-efficient or even self-sufficient?
