An argument between roommates culminated in a stabbing at a house trailer in Newton on Tuesday night, authorities said.
A 20-year-old man was stabbed several times shortly before 5:30 p.m. Tuesday in the 1800 block of Windsor Drive, Newton police Lt. Scott Powell said. That’s on the north edge of the city.
The victim was taken to a Wichita hospital, where he underwent surgery. He is expected to survive his injuries, Powell said.
His 23-year-old roommate was arrested Tuesday night at a friend’s house, Powell said. Investigators aren’t sure yet what the roommates were arguing about before the stabbing.
