A Uniondale man has been arrested after stabbing his roommate in the chest with a steak knife during an argument, Nassau County police said.
Police said the assault happened at 8:40 p.m. Tuesday while Yorlin Solorzano, 23, of Lawrence Street, was arguing with the roommate at his residence.
The victim sustained a cut in the chest and was taken to a hospital for treatment, police said.
Solorzano was arraigned Wednesday on charges of second-degree assault and fourth-degree possession of a dangerous weapon. He was held on a $15,000 bail, online court records show.
He was represented by the Legal Aid Society, which has a policy of not commenting in the early stages of a case.
