Two roommates who drank all day got into a fight when one of them offered the other’s beer to someone else, police said.

Wichita Police Sgt. Bruce Watts said the 54- and 49-year-old roommates, both men, began arguing when the 54-year-old locked the 49-year-old out of the house in the 600 block of South Kansas about 10 p.m. Friday.

The 49-year-old went to a neighbor’s house to get a key. The roommates began arguing again, and the 49-year-old broke a window at the apartment, which angered the 54-year-old.

The 54-year-old began hitting his roommate with a hammer.

The victim was taken to Wesley Medical Center and received stitches, Watts said.

Police arrested the 54-year-old on suspicion of aggravated battery.
