Police are trying to find a man who slashed another man’s neck with a box cutter during a dispute over a parking spot on Tuesday night.

The assault happened on Tuesday around 9 p.m. at the Fast Mart at 7020 Lawyers Road near Harris Boulevard.

The suspect and the victim were arguing over the parking space when the suspect pulled out the weapon. Police have not given an update on the victim’s condition.

Police say the man fled in a silver Volkswagen station wagon, possibly an early 2000s model. The vehicle could be a Passat or a Jetta.

Police encourage anyone with information to call the Crime Stopper’s tip line at 704-334-1600. Tipsters are eligible for a reward for information that leads to an arrest.
