Medics then transported the victim to the hospital.

The officer learned from the victim that he, Namauleg, and another man had been drinking at their house Thursday night. At 11pm, the victim asked the two to grab their belongings as he was going to sleep.

The victim and Namauleg got into an argument an. Namauleg allegedly grabbed a small knife from the top of a shelf and tried to stab the victim. The victim managed to move away, but sustained a small cut on his elbow.
