A 60-year-old Hampton man is accused of stabbing another man during an argument in Hampton Monday night, police said.

Officers and medics responded to a report of the incident in the 400 block of Calvert Street about 8 p.m., police spokeswoman Cpl. Ashley Jenrette said in a news release.

There, they found a 38-year-old man suffering from a stab wound. He was taken to the hospital with an injury that was not life-threatening and later released, Jenrette said.

Police think the victim and another man he knows were involved in a verbal altercation that escalated into a physical altercation, Jenrette said. The other man pulled out a knife and struck the victim one time, she said.

Police arrested Reginald Whigham, 60, of Hampton, in connection with the investigation. He is charged with one count malicious wounding, Jenrette said.
