A Florida man allegedly sliced his friend with a razor blade several times when they got into a fight outside of a gas station market.
Early in the morning on September 4, three men were hanging out together and they visited a Shell station convenience store in Holiday, Florida.
After they left the store, two of the men reportedly got into an argument. The fight quickly escalated and became physical.
It was reported that one man chased the other during the altercation, but the third person was not involved in the skirmish.
When the brawl concluded, one of the men walked away and left the other behind with severe injuries.
The authorities were alerted, and the alleged victim, who was bleeding, was found pressing a shirt against a wound on his neck.
The police were informed that the injuries were caused during the fight when the other party pulled out a razor blade and started cutting the alleged victim. The man was transported to the hospital for medical treatment.
The man who witnessed the incident reportedly told the police that he saw the pair fighting, but did not see the suspect holding a razor blade.
When the suspect was located, he reportedly told the police that he had to use the blade in self-defense, but it was reported that he did not have any injuries on his body.
The suspect, who has a tattoo of the state of Florida on his forehead, was placed under arrest and booked into the Pasco County Detention Center. He is expected to be charged with felony aggravated battery with a deadly weapon. He was held until he posted a $10,000 bond, and he is not allowed to have any weapons or contact with the alleged victim.
It was reported that the injured man is now in stable condition, and he required staples to close the slice wound on his neck.
