Lt. Casey Kilgore of the Fort Thomas Police said that there was alcohol involved.
After an investigation by police, Thang was arrested on May 5 at the apartments and charged with Assault 1st, a Class B felony that carries a sentence of 10-20 years.
Pau and Thang were roommates at the apartment with two others. The four are acquaintances who are from Myanmar and all work together as sushi chefs at a local grocery store.
Investigators were able to piece the night together after speaking to the victim. He stated that a fight ensued between he and Thang and that Thang said "he was going to kill him."
Thang is being held at the Campbell County on a $50,000 cash bond. He is due back in court on Friday.
The investigation and arrest was conducted by Detectives Adam Noe, Brent Moening and Officer Zac Rohlfer.
