A Columbia man was arrested after a verbal argument turned into an assault with a knife.
20-year-old Keenan T. Moore was arrested for first-degree assault, armed criminal action and unlawful use of a weapon.
According to police, Moore and 29-year-old Brandon R. Lewis, also of Columbia, had been drinking and got into a verbal argument at 108 Leslie Lane.
Witnesses said Moore pulled a knife on Lewis and assaulted him when the men started fighting around 9:00 p.m. Thursday.
Witnesses took Lewis to University Hospital, where he is now in serious but stable condition with what is believed to be a non-life threatening injury. They left Moore at the home, where he was arrested.
His bond is currently at $4,500.
