A warrant states Metro detectives spoke with the victim at TriStar Southern Hills Medical Center, who said Clemente Cortez-Vasquez, 30, woke him up, then argued with him, before pulling a box-cutter and slashing his neck.
Other roommates were able to wrestle the weapon away from Cortez-Vasquez, according to a police report.
Cortez-Vasquez was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. His bond was set at $20,000.
The suspect’s booking photo was not immediately released by Metro police.
