Roommate dispute gets physical

An empty room could have benefitted two female roommates who drummed up inventive ways to assault each other late Friday afternoon.

The roommates, who live in the 600 block of Moscow Street in the Excelsior district, got creative with their weaponry after an argument came to blows around 4:21 p.m., police said.

First, one of the “wild things” threw a baseball at her roommate, striking her in the head, police said. That sparked an all out brawl between the two, which had to be broken up by other roommates, cops said.

But it didn’t end there. One of the women threatened to stab the other before leaving the room. She returned with a metal nail file, police said. The woman stabbed her roommate in the abdomen with the nail file, cops said, causing a minor injury.

The assailant was later arrested and booked at Ingleside Station, police said.
