Police in Baltimore County have arrested a Dundalk man after a disagreement between customers at a pet store in the Danville Square ended with someone being stabbed on Tuesday.

Around noon, an argument began with 67-year-old Duwade Moses and another 51-year-old man on who was next in line to be assisted at the fish department inside the Pet Smart on Merritt Boulevard. Police say the men started spitting at each which quickly escalated to them throwing merchandise, then punches. During the fight, Moses reportedly pulled out a folding knife and stabbed the victim in the upper body.

Moses was taken into custody at the store and is being charged with first and second-degree assault.

The victim was taken to a local hospital for treatment and is expected to be okay.
