It’s believed a heated argument took place over the phone, and when the 33-year-old returned to the job site, the argument turned physical and the younger man was stabbed in the arm.

He was treated on the scene and then taken to the John Hunter Hospital for further treatment, while the 39-year-old was charged at the Toronto police station.

The 39-year-old plumber will face Toronto Local Court on Tuesday.
