DELAWARE, Ohio - A 23-year-old man has been arrested and charged in connection with the stabbing of a student at Ohio Wesleyan University last weekend.

Anthony Peddle, of Detroit, was stabbed while he was sleeping at the Chi Phi fraternity house on Franklin Street in Delaware at about 3:36 a.m. Saturday.

Thursday, Delaware police said they arrested Nicholas Corey Lee Eber, 23, of Delaware. He was charged with attempted murder and felonious assault.

Peddle was stabbed in the lower chest and hand. The assault allegedly occurred in the middle of the night, and the two apparently knew each other and had exchanged texts, according to police.

Delaware police say they had enough evidence to charge Eber as early as Sunday, but investigators didn't announce the arrest until Thursday after OWU students had finished finals and left campus for the summer.

Peddle, the senior class president at the university, was treated and released at The Ohio State University's Wexner Medical Center.

Eber is being held at the Delaware County Jail pending arraignment.

Peddle, a student athlete, was on the diving team and often took first place in competitions, according to university officials. He has been widely involved with other campus groups.

His mother tells NBC4 he will be at commencement on Saturday and will still speak to the graduating class.

Eber was not a member of Peddle's fraternity, and he was not a student at the university, according to university officials.
