A Cheyenne man was sent to the hospital and another arrested after a stabbing at a Cheyenne motel Saturday evening.

Cheyenne Police Department spokesman Officer Kevin Malatesta says police were called to the Firebird Motel at 1905 E. Lincolnway around 8:30 p.m. after 48-year-old Noah Schultz stabbed 57-year-old Mark Vanwinkle, "an acquaintance of his."

Malatesta says Vanwinkle was taken to Cheyenne Regional Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries, but he didn't know his status.

Schultz was arrested for domestic battery for an earlier incident involving his girlfriend, aggravated assault and interference with a peace officer.  He's currently being held in the Laramie County jail awaiting formal charges.

CORRECTION: According to arrest records, Noah Schultz is 48 years old, not 22 as first reported by police. KGAB regrets the error.
