Halifax Regional Police have charged a 21-year-old man with assault with a weapon after a stabbing at the Nova Scotia Community College.

Police were called to the school's Akerley campus in Dartmouth around noon on Wednesday after two men were involved in an altercation.

NSCC said both were students. The victim was treated in hospital and released. It's unclear if the men knew each other or what led to the incident.

The accused man is due in Dartmouth provincial court on April 5.
