Police said the violence erupted at about 3:20 pm on May 2 inside an apartment building on Hart Street near Knickerbocker Avenue in Bushwick.

According to law enforcement sources, the man and his roommate were both intoxicated when they got into a dispute for unknown reasons inside the residence. 

The situation quickly escalated into a physical altercation, cops said, during which the suspect grabbed hold of a sharp object and chased his roommate onto the street.
