A University of Kansas student was arrested over the weekend after allegedly threatening his roommate with a knife.

The victim reported to KU police on Friday that two days earlier his roommate at Self Hall, 1620 Engel Road, had made threats with a knife, Deputy Chief James Anguiano of the KU Office of Public Safety said. The suspect was interviewed, then arrested, Anguiano said.

No one was injured, Anguiano said.

The suspect, 18, was booked into jail Friday night on suspicion of aggravated assault and making a criminal threat, jail records show. He was later released on $9,000 bond.

As of Monday morning, charges against him did not appear in Douglas County District Court.
