The victim, a 29 year old male, stated that the attack occurred at his residence in the 700 block of N. Grant. He said he was arguing with his roommate, a 21 year old male, when his roommate produced a knife and attacked him. The victim sustained at least one stab wound and numerous defensive wounds. He was admitted to Southwest Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries.
