Officers were called to the scene on Sunday around 11 p.m. Inside they located Segota in a hallway. Barrett is also accused of stabbing a 32-year-old woman in the arm. She was treated and released from hospital.

Police located Barrett a short time later and arrested him. Investigators say the suspect and the victims were to known to each other and were residents in the building.
