A South Lake Tahoe man accused of striking his female roommate in the head with a rubber mallet has been arrested for suspicion of attempted murder.

South Lake Tahoe police say 47-year-old Steven Post was booked into the local jail where he was being held without bail.

Sgt. Shannon Laney says a verbal argument escalated Tuesday night before Post grabbed a rubber mallet and struck the woman several times in the head and arm.

Laney says she was transported to Barton Memorial Hospital and later flown to Renown Medical Center in Reno where her condition was not known.

Lake Tahoe News reports Post was arrested in 2010 and 2011 on charges of battering the same woman but was not convicted either time. Post told police the two have lived together for 18 years, but were not romantically involved.
