Woman stabbed in fight at hotel

September 27, 2008|Tony Perry

A fight over Internet use at a downtown budget hotel shortly after midnight led a man to stab a woman three times with a steak knife, police said Friday.

The two were staying at the Dustin Arms Hotel, which has a computer for guests to use. A 23-year-old man believed that a 49-year-old woman was unfairly dominating the computer and preventing him from checking important websites and e-mails, police said.

A verbal altercation became a physical fight, in which the man stabbed the woman in the neck, chin and chest, police said. The man was arrested on suspicion of assault, and the woman was taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening wounds.
