A Blue Mounds man was arrested early Monday morning for allegedly stabbing another man in an apartment.

Timothy Foley, 55, is tentatively charged with first-degree recklessly endangering safety, the Dane County Sheriff's Office said.

The stabbing happened at about 2:50 a.m. in an apartment in the 10000 block of South Street in the village of Blue Mounds .

The 42-year-old victim suffered a stab wound to the abdomen, was taken to UW Hospital in Madison, and had surgery for serious but non-life-threatening injuries.

Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Elise Schaffer said a roommate of the victim came home with Foley early in the morning, and the two were intoxicated and causing a disturbance.

"The men had argued after Foley was brought home," Schaffer said. "The victim was asking Foley to leave when he was stabbed."
