ATLANTA (AP) -- Authorities say a man believed to be a former Georgia Tech graduate student stabbed a university researcher with a sword.

Georgia Tech spokesman Matt Nagel says the victim was taken to Grady Hospital after the Thursday afternoon attack inside a building on campus. The victim's name and condition were not released pending notification of family.

The suspect, 33-year old Kshitij Shrotri,  has been taken into custody and charged with aggravated assault.

Nagel said a Georgia Tech police officer was injured slightly during the scuffle. His name also was not released.

Nagel said the campus' emergency notification system was not used during the incident because the suspect was apprehended immediately.
