The 33-year-old victim was taken to Indiana University Bloomington Health Hospital after suffering a 4-to-6-inch laceration to his left bicep.
Bloomington Police officers responded at 2:14 p.m. in the 1800 block of South Walnut after a man reported 45-year-old Ronald Walker forced his way into the caller's apartment, grabbed him by the neck, choked him and then stabbed him with a knife.
