A 32-year-old Arlington man has been charged with malicious wounding after police say he stabbed his ex-wife's boyfriend.

David Argueta still had access to his ex-wife's apartment in the 2900 block of South Glebe Road when he entered it early Friday morning, according to information police released Monday.

At about 6:20 a.m. Friday, police say Argueta entered the apartment, went into the bedroom where his ex-wife and her boyfriend were asleep, and stabbed the other man in his left side.

The man woke when he was stabbed, and someone in the apartment — presumably the woman — drove him to an area hospital, police spokesman Dustin Sternbeck told Patch. The puncture wound in his left side was not life-threatening, Sternbeck said.

Police arrived at the hospital and spoke to the victim. They were able to contact Argueta over the phone and convinced him to turn himself in, Sternbeck said.

Argueta was held without bond.
