A disagreement between strangers on Friday night ended in a trip to the emergency department for an 18-year-old Charlottesville man.

Police charged Nelson County resident Tony Page with malicious wounding, a Class 3 felony, after they say he slashed at the arms and face of a man he'd never met.

The two men got into an argument when they wound up walking alongside one another in the 600 block of Ninth Street Southwest around 11:45 p.m., said  Lt. Ronnie Roberts with the Charlottesville police.

Roberts said the disagreement escalated into a physical altercation, at which point Page allegedly pulled out a knife. Alcohol was a factor in the scuffle, Roberts said.

Friends took the teenager , who had a cut on his face and each arm, to the University of Virginia Medical Center, Roberts said.

If convicted, Page could be sentenced to a maximum of 20 years in prison and face a $100,000 fine.
