MANILA, Philippines - Far Eastern University (FEU) on Monday vowed to help a University of Santo Tomas (UST) student who was stabbed inside the FEU campus last week.

Albert Cabasada, director of the FEU Admissions and External Relations Office, said in a press statement that the university has offered financial medical assistance to the victim.

"As originally committed, FEU will assist," he said.

"The internal FEU investigation with respect to the incident which occurred last Oct 2, 2012 is ongoing. These activities are being coordinated with the external investigators and due process is being observed," he added.

"We enjoin those who may shed light on this matter to come forward and facilitate the resolution of this case," Cabasada said.

Police on Monday filed frustrated murder charges against an FEU student and 5 others for stabbing UST student Joanne Lourdes Reyes.

Police said they filed a lawsuit against Maria Christine Acosta, a graduating nursing student of FEU, and 5 "Jane Does" for the attack.

Reyes' mother has asked the Manila Mayor Alfredo Lim for help in locating the other suspects.
