A Fergus Falls man is facing charges after allegedly assaulting another person with a knife.

Arlo Eugene Perry, age 51, was charged in Otter Tail County District Court on Nov. 26 with assault in the second degree with use of a dangerous weapon.

According to court records, Perry assaulted a man with a knife in a domestic dispute that occurred at a residence on South Mill Street in Fergus Falls the evening of Nov. 23.

Alcohol was likely a factor in the incident.

Perry’s next court appearance has been scheduled for Monday, Dec. 9.
