A fight between two roommates at the Carlyle Apartments in downtown Spokane ended with one arrested and the other receiving staples for to close his stab wounds.
Scott P. McGuire, 43, remains jailed for first-degree assault after police say he stabbed his roommate in the forehead, left arm and right leg.
McGuire is a new resident at the Carlyle, which houses people with mental health issues.
McGuire, described by staff as "volatile," was paired with Patrick Estell, a three-year resident with a "sweet disposition," police said.
Staff followed a trial of blood from McGuire's room to the activity room last week, where he was bleeding from a cut on a finger.
Both men are said to have paranoid schizophrenia.
