    Police arrested a man who allegedly stabbed his co-worker in South Philadelphia Thursday morning.

    Officers took 45-year-old Michael Bozzi of 900 Anchor Street into custody and charged him with attempted murder, aggravated assault and other offenses, according to reports.

    Shortly before 8 a.m. an argument between Bozzi and the 47-year-old victim ensued over who receives more work, according to police.  The fight escalated to a physical altercation and then, police say, Bozzi pulled out a paring knife and slashed his co-worker's face three times. 

    Following the incident, which occurred near S. 18th and W. Ritner streets in South Philly, Bozzi discarded the weapon in a nearby trash can and continued to argue with the victim in the same general location, according to police.
