An Indiana man stabbed a co-worker Tuesday who confronted him about placing motor oil on his peanut butter and jelly sandwich, police said.

Jeremy Gordon, 22, was stabbed twice in the lower leg by Bradley McManomy, 27, during a confrontation Tuesday in a bathroom of the Fountain Foundry Corporation in Veedersburg, where they both work, according to Fountain County Sheriff Robert Bass.

Gordon thought McManomy had put the oil on his sandwich, but it was someone else, Bass said.

McManomy was arrested on suspicion of battery with a deadly weapon.

Gordon was treated at a hospital and released.

Charges may also be filed against Gordon for starting the fight, Bass said.

The sheriff said it's an example of how a practical joke can turn bad.
