FAIRFIELD, Ala. (AP) - Police in suburban Birmingham say a college student has been charged with attempted murder in the stabbing of his roommate.

Fairfield Police Chief Nick Dyer tells that 21-year-old Tyler Christopher Tomlin of Madison County is charged in the attack at Miles College.

The reported assault happened early Sunday in a dorm room. A student identified as Nathan Gordon was stabbed in the body and the head.

Authorities say the injuries weren't life-threatening, but he remained hospitalized in stable condition Monday.

A statement from the college described the stabbing as an isolated incident, but officials haven't released any possible motive.
