DELAWARE, Ohio (AP) -- The senior class president at a central Ohio college who was stabbed while he slept at his fraternity house is out of the hospital and will speak at the school's commencement ceremony this weekend.

The Columbus Dispatch ( ) reports that 21-year-old Anthony Peddle was hospitalized Saturday after someone entered the Chi Phi house at Ohio Wesleyan University in Delaware and stabbed him in the chest and hand.

Delaware police said Peddle probably knew his attacker. The fraternity house had no sign of forced entry. There have been no arrests.

Ohio Wesleyan spokesman Cole Hatcher says Peddle plans to speak as scheduled at graduation on Sunday. Hatcher says Peddle and his family asked not to be contacted by reporters.

Peddle is an early childhood education major from Detroit.
