MANCHESTER, NH (CBS) – A 63-year-old New Hampshire man is facing charges after police say he stabbed his roommate in a dispute over the volume of the television.

Dennis Fancy was arrested and charged at his apartment on Union Street in Manchester on Thursday.

Officers say Fancy and his 81-year-old roommate had gotten into an argument over the TV volume when Fancy grabbed a knife and stabbed the victim in the chest.

The victim was taken to the hospital where he was treated for serious but non life-threatening injuries.

Fancy is charged with First Degree Assault.

    you know when the accelerator pedal on the car “gets stuck” it’s always a octogenerian at the wheel…? Same issue here only the “volume up” button got stuck.

      Except an octogenarian didn’t go out of control and choose to make a decision to assault someone with a knife here. It was the octogenarian who got stabbed.
