A central Pennsylvania man is behind bars and a Penn State student is in the hospital with stab wounds after what police say was an insult over a hat. Twenty-eight-year-old State College resident Terence Robert Cane is accused of stabbing the student twice, once in the torso and once in the upper arm.

The 24-year-old student underwent multiple surgeries and is expected to recover. His name wasn't released.

Witnesses say the stabbing happened during a fight early Wednesday that started when Cane and his friends began making fun of a hat the student was wearing.

Cane is charged with aggravated assault and related counts.
