A 21-year-old man was transported to the Regional Medical Center Thursday night after receiving several cuts to his left shoulder and arm during an altercation over laundry, according to an incident report.

The 21-year-old said he went to a Yellow Jasmine Road residence to obtain clothing that had been recently washed and was in the process of being folded by another man.

The 21-year old asked the other man for a specific piece of clothing and was advised it, “may have been in the laundry” being folded, the report states.

A fight ensued in the bedroom and spilled into the living room. According to the report, the 21-year-old was on the receiving end of blows from a cellphone during the altercation.

The fight paused and the 21-year-old called another individual, asking that person to come the residence and grab the clothes.

That prompted the two men to start fighting again, the report said.

The 21-year-old was cut. The incident report noted the wounds were “consistent with a cutting or bladed instrument.”

The injured man was unsure if he wanted to press charges, according to the report.
