A dispute over music volume between roommates turned violent, leaving one hospitalized and the other arrested, New York City police said.
The incident happened in Bellmore, a coastal village on Long Island, located about 25 miles east of New York.
Frank Liguori, 61, confronted his 31-year-old roommate about it the volume of his music shortly after 10 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 12, according to a news release from the Nassau County Police Department.
The situation escalated and Liguori stabbed the roommate in the chest, police said.
The roommate, whose name has not been released, ran to a nearby 7-Eleven store to find help, police said. He was taken to the hospital for medical treatment.
Liguori was arrested and charged with second- and third-degree assault in addition to criminal possession of a weapon, police said.
The officer handling the case did not immediately respond to McClatchy News’ Nov. 14 request for comment. Liguori’s attorney could not be reached for comment.
Another 31-year-old New Yorker was stabbed after an argument about the volume of the music while riding the subway in June, according to the New York Post.
