Deputies from Shenandoah County arrested a 37-year-old Woodstock man Sunday night and charged him with malicious wounding in a stabbing incident.
Deputies said the defendant, Luis Daniel Nigaglioni Milanes of 94 Wood Park Lane, was trying to settle a dispute among parents that began earlier in the day with an altercation involving neighborhood children.
"They met in the park to try to work it out," said Lt. Darcy Dellinger of the Shenandoah County Sheriff's Office. The discussion between the adults grew into a heated argument in which Milanes displayed a knife and stabbed a 44-year-old man in the arm, Dellinger said.
The victim was transported to Shenandoah Memorial Hospital and released later in the evening, Dellinger said.
Milanes, who has been jailed without bond, is scheduled to appear in Shenandoah County General District Court at 11 a.m. Aug. 12.
