Officer Erin Spilker said at 9:30 a.m. police were called to an apartment in the 1400 block of F Street, where a 37-year-old man said his roommate had just assaulted him and was leaving.

Police arrested Kambiz Amjad after finding him getting into his vehicle. 

Spilker said they found the victim with multiple scratches to his torso, bruising to his body and face and a cut to his arm. Police called an ambulance after he showed signs of a head injury. 

He told officers Amjad started punching walls and doors and when he tried to intervene to stop Amjad, he turned on him and began hitting him in the head. Spilker said the men got into a wrestling match, during which the victim fell into a window, hitting his head and causing the window to break.

The victim also said Amjad threatened him with a box cutter. Because of one of the victim’s wounds, police believe he was cut with it.
