3 treated for cuts after attack on Ole Miss campus

OXFORD, Miss. (AP) - University of Mississippi officials say three female students were treated for cuts and another was arrested after an altercation on campus that likely involved a box cutter.

Authorities said Marisha Porter, a 19-year-old freshman from Columbus, was arrested and charged with aggravated assault. The incident at 11:30 a.m. Wednesday involved at least six students.

A news release from the university said the three injured students were treated at Baptist Memorial Hospital and released. Campus police believe their injuries were inflicted with a box cutter.

Investigators said the incident arose from an ongoing personal dispute among the women.
