A Reseda man was in serious but stable condition Tuesday night after he was slashed repeatedly across his body during a fight that broke out after a fender-bender, police said.

The 47-year-old victim and the attacker exchanged words Tuesday morning after the collision in the parking lot of a Reseda strip mall, where both men worked, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.

They had a second encounter about 1 p.m., police said, and the attacker pulled out a sharp weapon that may have been a box cutter.

"Things escalated and he slashed the victim," Officer Karen Rayner said.

She said Marvin Osvaldo Gonzalez, 26, of Van Nuys was booked on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon with great bodily injury. The name of the victim was not released.
