BOSSIER CITY, LA (KSLA) -

A Bossier City man is behind bars, charged with stabbing his brother with a roofing knife late Saturday night.

28-year-old Julio Cesa is charged with aggravated second degree battery for stabbing 39-year-old Marvin Mendez of Shreveport outside Cesa's home in the 600 block of McDade Street.

Police say the incident reportedly happened late Saturday night, but they were notified until just before 6 a.m. Sunday after Mendez called a relative from the scenic overlook on the A.R. Teague Parkway just north of McDade Street saying that he had been stabbed. Mendez's relative then called police.

Mendez was taken to LSU Health Center in Shreveport by Bossier City Fire Department personnel with what was determined to be a non-life threatening stab wound to the abdomen. He was taken into surgery and is expected to be okay.

Officers found Cesa at his home and took him into custody. He was booked into the Bossier City Jail. In addition to the charge of aggravated second degree battery, he was also charged with possession of marijuana.
