DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Police say they’ve arrested a Des Moines man on suspicion of stabbing his roommate after an argument about dirty dishes.

The Des Moines Register reports (http://dmreg.co/1YkSHU7 ) that officers were called to the East Grand Avenue apartment around 6:30 p.m. Wednesday. They found a 48-year-old man standing in the kitchen with a stab wound to his lower back. He was treated at a hospital for the non-life-threatening injury.

Officers arrested the man’s 55-year-old roommate, who was found in another room with what looked like a bloody blade next to him. He said it was a cheese knife he had been using when his roommate pushed him. The man told police he used the cheese knife in self-defense.

Police say the two had fought over dirty dishes before the stabbing.

Online court records do not list an attorney for the suspect.
