JERSEY CITY, N.J. — Police say a northern New Jersey man punched his roommate and threw him into a glass mirror because he was taking too long in the bathroom.

The Jersey Journal reports that the attack happened around 2 a.m. Saturday at an apartment building in Jersey City.

The victim told police that the man yelled at him through a closed door to get out because he wanted to use the bathroom. The victim’s neck was cut by glass from the shattered mirror, but he refused treatment for his injuries.

The 32-year-old alleged assailant was treated for small cuts on his left arm. He’s charged with simple assault and domestic violence.

The names of the two men were not released.
