An argument between neighbors over broken windows resulted in one man being cut by a knife, Wichita police said.

A the argument escalated, the 53-year-old pulled out a knife and cut the other man several times, East said. The 42-year-old was treated for minor injuries at Wesley Medical Center, he added.
