    Boise Police received a report of a fight involving a knife at a residence on the 4000 block of Libby Lane yesterday (May 25th) at approximately 6:45 p.m. Witnesses tell police that the suspect, later identified as Patrick William, had been involved in a verbal argument with a resident. The suspect and victim know each other. The confrontation turned violent when the suspect lunged at the victim repeatedly with a knife, causing what appeared to officers on scene to be deep cuts in the victims hands. Witnesses say the suspect then fled on foot. Officers who arrived on scene located the suspect walking down the street near the residence. Boise Police officers issued several verbal orders to the suspect that the suspect failed to obey. Eventually officers were forced to deploy a Taser to safely take the suspect into custody. The knife officers believe was used in the attack was located a short distance away from the apartment, laying in the grass. Officers believe that alcohol use may be a factor in this case. The suspect was transported to the Ada County Jail and booked on the above listed charges.
