WINTER PARK, Fla. (AP) - A Full Sail University student has been charged with stabbing a classmate in an apparent hate crime.

The Orange County Sheriff's Office says 29-year-old Xavier Nunez attacked another student with a screwdriver during a statistics class on Thursday.

Sherriff's spokesman Jeff Williamson said Nunez uttered racial slurs and stabbed a black student multiple times in the neck and shoulder area.

The victim was treated at the scene and released. His name has not been released.

Williamson said the incident is being classified as a hate crime. Nunez has been charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon.

Full Sail University is a for-profit arts school located in Winter Park, about 10 miles northeast of Orlando.
