Bray Boland |

A teenage boy has been arrested after allegedly stabbing a man on the University of Sydney campus.

Ambulances were called to the site at inner-city Camperdown about 8.30am on Tuesday and found a 22-year-old man with stab wounds.

Police were told the alleged attacker got on a bus at nearby Parramatta Rd not long after the incident.

A short time later, a 14-year-old boy was arrested near Royal Prince Alfred Hospital, which neighbours the university.

The injured man was taken to the same hospital in a stable condition.

A crime scene has been established at the university campus and the boy is being questioned by police.

The teen did not know the man before the alleged stabbing, police said.

A Sydney University spokeswoman said a police operation was under way on the campus and staff were working with authorities.

“As a precautionary measure there may be an increased security and police presence on campus while investigations continue,” she said in a statement.

Police assured the public there was no ongoing risk to the community.
