A Naples man is accused of stabbing his co-worker while on the job, the Collier County Sheriff's Office said in a report.

It happened Friday at a home on Barn Road in Naples.

Deputies say the resident of the home hired the two men from Yabeyire Services to repair screen lanai damages.

The victim told deputies that him and his co-worker began arguing over a pressure washer hose while they were packing their tools.

As the argument escalated, Raul Perez-Acosta, 25, is accused of stabbing his co-worker in his right arm with a screen cutter, CCSO said in a report.

The victim reportedly ran to the aid of the homeowner who contacted authorities.

Raul was arrested and charged with Aggravated Battery.
