MEDFORD, Ore. (AP) - Police have arrested a 65-year-old Medford man they say attacked his roommate with a crowbar because he thought the man had been sending sexually explicit messages to his girlfriend.

The Medford Mail Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1JUPkpJ ) that police say the man believed his roommate Alex Harrington was sending his girlfriend explicit text messages, a practice known as “sexting.”

Police say he confronted Harrington while holding a crowbar and a knife with a brass knuckle handle. According to an affidavit, the man hit Harrington in the face with the crowbar, leaving a cut that required seven stitches.

The 65-year-old man is a registered sex offender and faces unrelated charges of possession, manufacture and delivery of methamphetamine.
