Officers found 41-year-old Gabriel Roman and 29-year-old Guillermo Fuero-Mendoza lying in the kitchen, with Roman suffering from a stab wound to the chest and Mendoza having a slight cut to a finger.
The fight allegedly began when the two began arguing over money owed to Mendoza. The fight apparently was contained to the kitchen, where Mendoza allegedly took a knife and stabbed Roman.
Both men were initially taken to Newman Regional Health for treatment. Roman was then transported to Stormont-Vail in Topeka. The hospital has not released a patient condition to the media but Deputy Police Chief Ed Owens says the injuries are not believed to be life-threatening. Mendoza, meanwhile, was taken to the Lyon County Jail after his treatment.
Formal charges are pending. The Lyon County Attorney's Office is reviewing the reports associated with the case.
