A 45-year-old man was arrested yesterday morning after allegedly stabbing a homeless man who sleeps in front of his house.

Officer Gordon Shyy says the attack happened at about 3 a.m. on Monday when he saw the homeless man outside his house on the 400 block of Natoma. The two had an argument over property; the resident kicked the homeless man's stuff then pulled out a knife and stabbed him in the arm.

The 42-year-old victim was taken to San Francisco General Hospital where he was treated for a minor stab wound.

The neighbor was later arrested where he spent the remainder of his slumber in jail.
