An argument about music ended when a Gainesville man grabbed a knife and stabbed his boyfriend in the stomach Thursday, Gainesville Police said.
Frederick Resha Warren, 31, told police the altercation between him and his boyfriend started over music, but did not reveal anything more of his motive, according to the police report. Witnesses saw him stab his boyfriend in the stomach and leave an apartment in the 1900 block of Fourth St. at about 9:22 p.m.
The couple, who have lived together for about four years, began arguing in someone else’s apartment, and at one point Warren pushed the man against a refrigerator, according to the report.
The couple then left to go outside. Two witnesses saw Warren come back inside and grab the knife, fit with a 3-inch blade, according to the report.
Warren then punched the man in the face and stabbed him in the stomach, the man told police, according to the report.
The man was taken to UF Health Shands Hospital to be treated for a less-than-two-inch injury to the upper-left portion of his stomach, according to the police.
After his arrest, Warren told police his boyfriend became confrontational in the kitchen and walked outside in a fit of anger, according to the report.
Warren and his boyfriend have a history of domestic violence, according to the report.
Police arrested Warren on a charge of attempted murder. Authorities took him to the Alachua County Jail where he remains, as of press time, on a $250,000 bond.
