ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — A Millersville man has been charged with attempted murder after Anne Arundel County police say he slashed another man's face with a box cutter.

Police say 43-year-old James Bennett discovered his girlfriend with the man in an unoccupied office in Annapolis on Thursday and cut the man's face. Police say Bennett fled the building and responding officers found the man bleeding heavily.

Officers found Bennett at a nearby Wendy's restaurant, trying to hide in the women's bathroom. Police say he was arrested and charged with attempted first- and second-degree murder, assault and reckless endangerment.

Police say a yellow box cutter between the hedges and a brick wall near the Wendy's.

Police describe the injured man's wounds as not life-threatening, but say he required a significant number of sutures.
