According to Anniston police Sgt. Chris Sparks, a verbal dispute between a 27-year-old man and a 48-year-old man led to the incident.
The 27-year-old told police that during the argument, the 48-year-old stabbed him in the shoulder with a knife, the sergeant said.
The 48-year-old told police that the 27-year-old punched him after he forced his way into an apartment that belonged to a female acquaintance of theirs, the sergeant said.
Sparks said the 30-year-old woman who rents the apartment in which the incident took place told police that the 27-year-old had not been invited into her apartment.
According to Sparks, the 27-year-old went to Regional Medical Center for treatment for a shoulder injury and is expected to recover.
Sparks said that after police arrived Anthony Spivey, 48, was arrested on a misdemeanor charge of disorderly conduct. Sparks said Spivey interfered with the officers investigating the alleged stabbing by screaming profanities and being unruly. Sparks declined to say whether Spivey was the 48-year-old accused in the stabbing.
Spivey paid $300 bond and was released from the Anniston City Jail on Tuesday, according to Sparks.
The 48-year-old could face a felony charge of second-degree assault and the 27-year-old could face a felony charge of first-degree burglary and a misdemeanor charge of third-degree assault, according to police reports.
