James City County Police have made an arrest after a man allegedly attacked another man with a box cutter at a 7-Eleven store.
Terrence Levi Culley, 31, of Gloucester, is charged with maiming and evading and eluding police, according to a James City County news release.
The victim suffered a black eye, bruising and cuts, although no injuries were caused by the box cutter.
Police were called to the 7-Eleven, located at 8185 Croaker Road, around 9:45 a.m. Thursday for an assault.
Witnesses told police a man, identified as a 30-year-old James City County resident, was outside the store when another man approached him and started punching him.
Police said there was no provocation from the victim.
The man, later identified as Culley, knocked the victim to the ground and took out a box cutter when the victim fought back, according to police.
Culley allegedly slashed at the man with the box cutter, but only cut his clothing.
After the altercation, Culley fled the scene in a black pickup truck. When officers found the vehicle and attempted to stop Culley, he continued driving, police said.
Police located Culley and the truck about 15 minutes later at the Shell gas station at 7340 Richmond Road.
According to police, Culley said he attacked the man because “he was wearing a vest.”
He was taken into custody and taken to the Virginia Peninsula Regional Jail, where he is being held without bond, according to police.
