A Wichita Falls man is in jail for threatening another person with a box cutter.

Just before 7 p.m. on Sunday, Wichita Falls police responded to a disturbance call in the 400 block of Austin Street.  Police were advised that a Hispanic male wearing a yellow shirt and jeans was attempting to stab another Hispanic male.

When they arrived, officers found 58-year-old Carlos Lopez, who matched the description.  Officers say Lopez admitted to having a weapon on him, and when searched, police found a gray-handled box cutter in his pocket.

The victim told officers he was in the process of moving to another apartment when Lopez approached him and made threats to cut him with the box cutter.

Lopez was arrested and charged with aggravated assault.
