A Virginia man was arrested after he threatened another driver with a hatchet during an argument over a parking space, police said Friday.

Authorities say 20-year-old Kamadin Atabaki is charged with attempted malicious wounding following the Oct. 19 incident.

Fairfax County Police spokeswoman Lucy Caldwell says Atabaki and another driver had set their sights on one parking spot at an apartment complex in Annandale. One driver told police he was in the process of parking in the spot when another driver slipped into the space.

Caldwell says an argument later ensued, during which time Atabaki is accused of retrieving a hatchet from his apartment and threatening the other driver.

Police responded to the scene and found the hatchet. No one was hurt.

It isn't clear if Atabaki has an attorney.
