The attack happened on the 1200 block of M Street NW about 12:45 a.m.
The men were inside an apartment building about two blocks east of Thomas Circle NW when one man used a knife to repeatedly stab the other man in his stomach, according to authorities. The man with the knife then held it to the throat of a woman whom he forced out of the building before he fled.
The stabbing victim was conscious after the assault. But his condition wasn’t immediately clear.
Police arrested 41-year-old Robert Bethea of Northwest D.C. in connection with the stabbing. Information on his lawyer wasn’t immediately available.
