Student Attacked at Middle Tennessee State University

MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (AP) -- A student accused of attacking an 18-year-old coed inside his dorm room at Middle Tennessee State University claimed on a 911 call that she tried to hurt herself.

Freshman Kevin Sisco called police just before midnight Tuesday and told them there was a woman in his room in need of medical help.

Sisco was being held today in the Rutherford County jail on a $300,000 bond on a charge of attempted first-degree murder. The coed remains hospitalized in stable but critical condition.

Sisco said in the call that she was acting crazy and tried to kill herself.

Police believe she was beaten.
