A Salina man is arrested after slashing two people with a box cutter knife.

Police arrested 52-year-old James Fetrow after he allegedly shoved his way into a home in the 400 block of South 12th, and cut a man and woman with a blade.

According to Lt. Scott Siemsen, Fetrow knocked on the door of a female acquaintance just before 10:30pm on Thursday night, then pushed his way inside.
