GILLETTE (WNE) — An argument over housing turned violent early Wednesday morning when Brandon Longest, 28, allegedly stabbed a 46-year-old man three times, causing a lung injury, said Gillette Police Detective Jeremiah Wagner.

Longest was arrested on suspicion of aggravated assault and battery, a felony.

The 46-year-old was taken to the emergency room for his wounds. Campbell County Health spokeswoman Karen Clarke said the man’s condition was fair by late Wednesday morning.

The 46-year-old had been staying in Longest’s Stanley Avenue residence for a week, and at about 2 a.m. Wednesday, Longest confronted the 46-year-old about not leaving, Wagner said. The two argued and eventually, Longest allegedly punched the older man and stabbed him with a knife in the arm, the abdomen and the hand, Wagner said.
