Fresno Police arrested a man for alleged assault Wednesday after a fight at a boarding home in downtown Fresno.
Officers said a 44-year-old man was stabbed in his back and forearm by William Maldonado, another boarder in the Home Sweet Home facility.
Maldonado and the victim resided in the same room in the home, officers said. The men got into an argument because Maldonado believed the victim was going through his belongings, officers said. Maldonado struck the victim with a skateboard and then stabbed him twice, officers said. The skateboard and knife were recovered in the room.
The victim was taken to Community Regional Medical Center and was reported in stable condition.
Maldonado was arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon and for a separate battery charge.
