NEW YORK, New York -- Police have arrested a man after investigators say he slashed a father and his adult son with a box cutter.

Police charged Vinesh Marajh, 42, with assault, disorderly conduct and harassment.

Police say Marajh and two other men were drinking on Saturday night outside a synagogue when they got into a fight with the father and son.

The father and son were both wounded, though the extent of their injuries are not clear.

Police say the victims are Jewish, but they do not believe this was a bias crime.
