NBCConnecticut.com

Police said a man stabbed his coworker in the neck over a dispute about potato chips.

Bridgeport police arrested a 55-year-old Trumbull man accused of stabbing his coworker with a pen in a dispute over potato chips.

Officer Darryl Wilson responded to the Food Bazaar on Sylvan Avenue on Thursday after receiving a report of an assault.

The victim said that he was working in the receiving area when employees knocked over bags of chips, so he told Sang Park, of Trumbull, to have the employees who knocked over the chips pick them up, police said.

Park said he thought the victim was blaming him for the mishap and was tired of the man telling him what to do, so he stabbed him in the neck with a pen, police said.

The injury wasn’t serious, police said, and the victim didn’t want to go to the hospital.

Park was charged with second-degree assault. Bond was set at $10,000.
