Officers were called to the Wal-Mart Neighborhood Market, 11010 west 74th Terrace, at 5:35 Saturday morning.
An employee of the store told police that a man with cuts around his face, walked in and asked for help.
Police arrived at 5:46 a.m. and made contact with the man who told them where the disturbance had occurred.
The victim, only identified as a 39-year-old man, was transported to an area hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
Major Doug Orbin said on Monday that "the victim went to the suspect's apartment in the 6800 block of Nieman Road. An argument ensued, at some point the suspect grabbed a knife and during the scuffle cut the victim around the neck area."
The victim left the apartment and went to the Walmart Neighborhood Market, where store employees called the police.
Officers returned to the apartment where the disturbance took place and took the suspect into custody. Johnson County Sheriff's Office booking logs show a 30-year-old Shawnee resident was arrested at the address and faces a charge of aggravated battery.
