MADISON, Wis. (WMTV)--- Two Madison men were arrested early Sunday morning following a stabbing inside their apartment at Hub Madison.

One roommate said the 21-year-old victim put him in a headlock and punched him multiple times in the face, and that is when he armed himself with a knife around 2:30 a.m. The victim had a knife wound to his stomach and other cuts on his hand following the disturbance in the suspects’ apartment.
