A fight between two roommates that started over a pinched beer ended with the alleged brew thief stabbing his roommate and his landlord in Northeast Philadelphia last night, police said.
David Gentner, 50, and his 33-year-old female roommate got into a heated argument around 8:30 p.m. at the house where they live on Sanger Street near Summerdale Avenue because Gentner took the woman's beer, police said.
At some point, the woman threw a punch at Gentner but missed and the 54-year-old landlord got in between the two, according to police. Gentner then pushed the landlord out of the way and punched the woman once in the nose, police said.
He then grabbed a knife and cut the woman on the back of her head and on her left bicep before stabbing his landlord once in the right arm, according to police.
