Longview police Friday afternoon arrested a man suspected of stabbing an acquaintance in November at his home in the 500 block of 18th Avenue.
Sean L. Lair, 45, of Longview was booked today on suspicion of first-degree assault. The victim was treated and released for a stab wound on Nov. 18.
Lair previously was sentenced to a deferred year in jail, with most of the year suspended as long as he did not violate the terms of his probation, after being convicted of felony harassment and fourth-degree assault in 2001.
This story has been updated to clarify Lair's sentence in 2001.
