A 54-year-old Lawrence man was arrested Tuesday evening after attacking his roommate with a knife following a disagreement.

According to Lawrence Police Sgt. Dave Hubbel, the incident occurred about 9:05 p.m. in the 400 block of Michigan Street. Hubbel said the two roommates had gotten into an argument. When it escalated, one of the men pulled out a razor-like blade and slashed the other man.

The victim walked to nearby Lawrence Memorial Hospital, where he reported the incident and was treated for what Hubbel described as a 12-inch laceration. The injury was not life-threatening.

As officers were responding to the call on Michigan Street, they encountered the suspect leaving the area. He was apprehended near Sixth Street and taken into custody.

Hubbel said the suspect was arrested on charges of aggravated battery.
