A Charleston man was recovering from a stab wound Saturday, while the man police think stabbed him was arrested.
Police said Dallas "Bo" McGhee was stabbed in the stomach at his apartment on the 600 block of Ohio Avenue in Charleston at about 1:30 p.m. Saturday.
Police said they think McGhee’s neighbor, Roosevelt Walker, 72, is the one who stabbed him.
Police said the two had been drinking all day, started arguing and the fight quickly got violent.
"Apparently, the argument became very loud,” Lt. Steve Cooper, of Charleston police, said. “They’re not exactly sure what the argument was about, but, at that point, the stabbing took place. Luckily, the suspect's in custody. We don't believe the injury is life-threatening to the victim."
Walker will be charged with malicious wounding.
