NEW YORK (Reuters) - New York City police arrested a 13-year-old boy in connection with the murder of a college student in a Manhattan park, local media reported on Friday, rattling a city in which crime rates have plunged in recent years.

Tessa Majors, 18, was stabbed multiple times with a knife on Wednesday evening during a robbery while walking through Harlem’s Morningside Park near her school, Barnard College, according to the New York Police Department. Police believe there were up to three attackers.

Majors was able to stagger out of the park to seek help at a nearby school security booth, and was declared dead at a hospital. She was completing her first semester at the women-only college after leaving her home in Charlottesville, Virginia, to move to the city.

Morningside Park has long had a reputation for being unsafe and the site of numerous crimes, including murders.

“1 individual has been arrested & this remains an active investigation,” NYPD Chief of Detectives Rodney Harrison said on Twitter late on Friday without providing any additional information on the identity of the person detained.
