Horseplay between two friends went too far Monday when one man was punctured by a pocketknife, police said.

Daniel Albro, 20, was charged with third-degree assault after he allegedly cut his friend's leg with the pocketknife, resulting in a 1/2-in. puncture wound, police said. The victim would require either a butterfly bandage or a few stitches, according to the report.

The victim told police he did not feel fearful of Albro at anytime while they were wrestling with each other and the roughhousing just went too far, according to the report. However, the man requested Albro's arrest.

Neither man could give a reason as to why the pocketknife was pulled out. Albro was released on a promise to appear in court on Sept. 10.
