Joplin police respond to call in stabbing

A 21-year-old Joplin man suffered two small cuts and a longer laceration on an arm during an apparent dispute Saturday with his roommate, police said.

Officers were called at 3:42 p.m. to 3114 E. Ninth St. regarding a stabbing. Police Cpl. Chuck Niess said Keaton W. Fine refused transport to a hospital for treatment of his stab wounds. He told police that he was moving out of the residence when his roommate assaulted him.

Niess said the roommate was gone when officers arrived and had not yet been located by Monday for questioning.
