An ECU student and football player is recovering after police say he was stabbed in the back at a student apartment complex.

It happened just before 1:00 a.m. Sunday at North Campus Crossing in Greenville.

Police say 19-year-old Tre' Robertson and several friends went uninvited to a party when a fight broke out.

That's when Robertson told police he tried to leave, but a man came up behind him and stabbed him.

Police say a friend drove Robertson to the hospital where he was treated for non-life-threatening injuries.

Robertson described his attacker as a black man about 6'1" tall, and weighing about 280 lbs.

The man has a beard, and was last seen wearing a white tank-top T-shirt, and blue jeans.

Robertson's bio says he played offensive line at Person High School. In 2011 Robertson didn't experience any action for the Pirates, but did serve as a member of the scout team.

Call the Greenville Police Department at 252-329-4315 if you have more information on this case.
