Marvin Martin, 56, is accused of attacking the 51-year-old victim around 1:45 a.m. as a fight escalated inside their apartment on the first block of South View Street.

Police said the victim suffered injuries caused by a "box cutter-like object" to his neck, shoulder, torso and arm. Authorities did not identify the man, but said he was expected to survive after undergoing surgery at an Aurora hospital.
