TORONTO (AP) — A suspect in the stabbing of a professor and two students during a class on gender issues at a university in the Canadian city of Waterloo has been charged in what police are calling a hate-motivated attack. Waterloo Regional Police say Geovanny Villalba-Aleman faces three counts of aggravated assault, four counts of assault with a weapon and two counts of possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose. Police say the accused targeted a gender-studies class and investigators believe this was a hate-motivated incident related to gender expression and gender identity.
