SAN DIEGO  – A man was arrested Thursday morning on suspicion of seriously injuring his roommate during a fight at a College Area home, police said.

It happened shortly before 10:15 p.m. Wednesday at a home on College Avenue near Pontiac Street, San Diego police Officer John Buttle said.

The 41-year-old man and his 42-year-old male roommate got into an argument for unknown reasons and the argument turned violent, Buttle said.
