GRAND JUNCTION, Colo (KKCO) - A Grand Junction man is behind bars after police he say he stabbed his roommate. Officials say the roommate will likely be charged in the case as well.
The alleged incident took place late Friday night in the 1000 block of Teller Avenue.
Police say 26-year-old Calvin Ahkeah got into an argument with a roommate, then took a knife and stabbed him in the chest.
Officials say when officers arrived on scene, both Ahkeah and the victim lied to them, saying he had been hurt during a robbery at their home.
The victim was taken to the hospital with what police call serious, but non-life threatening injuries. Officials say he will likely be slapped with misdemeanor false reporting charges once he is released.
Ahkeah faces charges of first-degree assault with a deadly weapon and false reporting to authorities. He remains in the Mesa County Jail on a $60,000 bond.
