PROVIDENCE, R.I. — A college student from Pennsylvania has been charged with what police call the unprovoked stabbing of a homeless woman in downtown Providence.

Police say 22-year-old Conor Noll, of Blandon, Berks County, was arraigned Monday on a felony assault charge.

He’s a student at Johnson and Wales University.

The 59-year-old woman was stabbed in the wrist and arm at about 2 a.m. on Jan. 2 as she slept in a pedestrian walkway.

The suspect was placed at the scene through surveillance video. Noll told police it was him in the video, but he didn’t stab the woman.

Noll didn’t enter a plea. He was released on $10,000 personal recognizance and referred to the public defender’s office. A listed phone number for him couldn’t be found.

The university has suspended him.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail.
