Police: Argument over snoring leads to stabbing at motel

WILMINGTON, N.C. (AP) — Police in North Carolina say an argument over snoring led to a stabbing at a motel.

Wilmington police told news outlets 54-year-old Guillermo Moreno-Vasquez was arrested and charged with assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury.

Investigators say Moreno-Vasquez and another man got into an argument in their motel room Wednesday, and that led to the stabbing. The victim’s injuries were not life-threatening. It’s unclear which man’s snoring sparked the argument.

Police responded to the motel after receiving a report of a man coming to the front desk with a large knife covered in blood. Police say the two men work for a Texas construction company and were rooming together while working a job in Wilmington.


It’s not known if Moreno-Vasquez has an attorney.
