A Lake Charles man is accused of attempted second-degree murder, according to a news release from the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office.
Authorities said on Monday, at approximately 9 p.m., Calcasieu deputies were dispatched to a local hospital regarding a stabbing.
Authorities said when deputies arrived, they discovered the victim had been stabbed in the back following a physical altercation with 29-year-old Dylan P. Mire, a roommate.
The victim was transferred to a Lafayette hospital for treatment for a punctured lung and his condition is currently unknown, authorities said.
Mire was arrested and booked into the Calcasieu Correctional Center and charged with attempted second-degree murder and resisting by flight.

Judge Ron Ware set his bond at $36,500.
