    A man slashed another man's hand with a box cutter near a New Jersey grocery store Friday afternoon, in an attack police say was triggered by road rage.

    The stabbing happened at the ShopRite on the 1200 block of Blackwood Clementon Road in Gloucester Co. just after 4:30 p.m.

    Police tell NBC10 that Michael Brown, 49, used a box cutter to slash the hand of Carl Costantino, 55, when Costantino approached his car during a road rage incident.

    Both men pulled inside the parking lot of the ShopRite following the slashing. As police arrived, Brown pulled away, initiating a short police pursuit, according to a press release.

    The chase ended at the man's Pine Hill home, where he got out of his vehicle and surrended to authorities.

    Brown was charged with eluding police, driving with a suspended license and several other violations. He's being held on $50,000 bail.

    Constantino refused medical attention, said police.
