Authorities said that the man who was slashed showed up to Rhode Island Hospital in Providence with a "significant laceration to his lower neck." At last check, he was in stable condition.

Juan Carlos Alvarez was arrested by police without incident on Wednesday, and has been charged with assault and battery with a dangerous weapon and assault to murder, according to a news release. He was arraigned that afternoon in Taunton District Court.

It's unclear what may have sparked the argument between the co-workers. It's also unclear if Alvarez has an attorney who could speak to his charges.
