BVU Student Reports Assault At Knife Point By Another Student

The Storm Lake Police Department was called to the Buena Vista Regional Medical Center (BVRMC) Monday night for an assault involving students at Buena Vista University (BVU). Upon their arrival at the hospital, officers found an adult male victim who told them he was a student at BVU and alleged another student at the school, 20-year-old Alissa Good of Cedar Rapids, had assaulted him and threatened him at knife point. He says the assault occurred earlier in the evening at White Hall on the BVU campus when Good confronted him about money he owed her. The victim says at that time, Good assaulted him several times and at one point threw the knife, striking the victim in the leg. Other students physically pulled Good off the victim, who says he was not injured, but went to the medical center to be checked out after the altercation because of a pre-existing condition. Good was located by officers outside the Grand Hall and was taken into custody. BVU security located the knife in a third-floor men’s restroom in White Hall and turned the weapon over to police. Following an investigation, Good has been charged with going armed with intent, a class D felony, two counts of assault while displaying a dangerous weapon, aggravated misdemeanors, assault and disorderly conduct, both simple misdemeanors. She was booked into the Buena Vista County jail and later released on a $5,000 bond.
