WLEX-TV reports the female victim will be okay

Adkins was armed with a machete and knives, Lexington Police Chief Mark Barnard said. Atkins then reportedly threatened several non-Republican students and injured two women, one of whom ended up in a nearby hospital. Another woman was treated at the scene.

A man armed with a machete asked about the political affiliations of people at a university coffee shop Friday morning before injuring two females in central Kentucky, a witness said. While nothing has been released on Adkins┬┤ current mental state, he has been taken into custody, and will most likely be evaluated for mental competence to stand trial for today┬┤s alleged attack.

The alleged assailant, 19-year-old Mitchell W. Adkins, was charged with first degree assault, three counts of first degree wanton endangerment and fourth degree assault, Sgt. Jervis Middleton, the public information officer for Lexington Police told NBC News in a statement. "She said, 'Republican.' He said, 'Okay, ' then asked some other girl".

Tristan Reynolds, a student who was in the campus cafe where the attack occurred, said about 30 to 40 people were there at the time.

Later Friday morning, she was safe, "and her family is with her at UK Hospital", Transylvania President Seamus Carey said. "They were very on it".

School administrators and law enforcement officials credited campus safety officers for moving quickly to contain and subdue the situation.

"They've always been unbelievable, and today they proved their worth again", Carey said. Lexington Police are investigating and haven't confirmed that account. During the training, campus security and police discussed locking down buildings and keeping students and faculty safe. Jazzman's Cafe is located "inside the Glenn Building".

University spokeswoman Michele Gaither Sparks said that Adkins withdrew in 2015.
