FREMONT -- Police arrested a man over the weekend after they say he stabbed his roommate in the neck with a clothes iron.

Salvador Ramos, 37, was arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon following the Saturday morning attack at a home where the men live in the 100 block of G Street, said police spokeswoman Geneva Bosques.

Officers responded to a 4:35 a.m. call for a fight between two men at the home and upon their arrival saw the 31-year-old male victim get into his car and try to flee.

When officers stopped the victim they noticed he was suffering from a stab wound to his neck, Bosques said. He was transported to a hospital to be treated for the non-life threatening injury, police said.

An investigation revealed the men were inside the home, got into a scuffle and that the suspect grabbed an iron and used it as a weapon during the fight.

The suspect was arrested at the home without inside and transported to the Fremont jail, Bosques said.

Jail records show that as of Wednesday morning Ramos remained free on bond.
