Roommate knifing lands aggressor in prison

A fight between roommates led to one being knifed, and the other being held under arrest.

A 26-year old Nigerian man from Żejtun has been accused of knifing the victim in a grievous manner, harming him, as well as having a knife in a public space without a license to do so. The accused, who works at a construction site, allegedly harmed his roommate at their flat.

In Court, Inspector Roderick Attard testified that a bleeding man walked in asking for assistance. While providing assistance, they received a telephone call that there had been an argument in a residence in Żejtun. The accused was quickly caught by the Police.

The accused pleaded not guilty to the accusations, but did not ask for bail.
