OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - A University of Nebraska at Omaha student has been taken into police custody after being accused of pulling a pocket knife on another student in the university’s library.

The university sent an email to faculty and students about the Wednesday morning incident.

The Omaha Police Department says 21-year-old Leo Labogen had been asked not to talk so loudly on his cellphone when he pulled the knife.

Other students tackled Labogen, who displayed another knife, and held him down until police arrived. Omaha police later took Labogen into custody on attempted felony assault and three counts of carrying a concealed weapon.

No one was injured during the incident, and the library remained open as usual throughout and after the incident.

UNO is providing counseling services for students disturbed by the event.
