BOISE, Idaho (AP) - A Boise man accused of cutting a stranger’s throat with a razor in August pleaded not guilty Wednesday.

KTVB-TV (https://bit.ly/1PmvgSY ) reports that 28-year-old Anthony Reed Schmidt is charged with aggravated battery and use of a deadly weapon in commission of a crime.

According to law enforcement officials, over the summer the victim opened his front door to find a man standing outside. The man pulled out a razor, slashed the victim’s throat and ran away to a car.

The victim told police that he had never seen the attacker before.

Ada County Sheriff’s deputies say Schmidt targeted the victim after talking to a mutual friend.

Schmidt had been out of prison for two weeks before the attack happened after serving nine years for a burglary and grand theft conviction.
