NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Metro police have arrested and charged a man after he allegedly stabbed another man at the Lincoln College of Technology.

The stabbing occurred Thursday morning as the two men were working in the college’s automatic transmission shop.

According to an affidavit, Joshua Young placed a part incorrectly on the transmission pump the men were assembling.

He told the arresting officer the victim made a remark about his work on the pump, which angered him.

Metro police said in the report Young then pulled a knife out, stabbing the victim in the forearm.

The injury caused a “substantial loss of blood,” and the victim was taken to TriStar Skyline Medical Center for emergency treatment.

The affidavit stated that Young admitted to the arresting officer that the stabbing was not an accident, and that the victim’s son was also a witness to the event.

Young is charged with felony aggravated assault, serious bodily injury.
