A U.S. student at an American university in Rome was allegedly stabbed by his roommate 25 times.

The incident reportedly happened after a night of Halloween partying. The student remains in an intensive care unit.

San Giovanni hospital has declined to give details about the condition of the victim, whom authorities have not named but said is around 20.

The roommate, a fellow student at John Cabot University, is in police custody as they probe the attack early Thursday. Police have said the attack followed a night of alcohol and possible drug use.

Franco Pavoncello, John Cabot’s president, said press or social media rumors do not accurately reflect what happened, but offered no detail.

He urged prayers for the families of the victim and alleged assailant.
