UPPER EAST SIDE — A man threw a block of cheese at a Morton Williams shopper during an argument outside the grocery store Wednesday night, police said.

A 62-year-old man got into a argument with a 38-year-old Brooklyn man, who was about to enter the 1066 Third Ave. store near 73rd Street just before 9 p.m., according to a police report.

During the dispute, he threw a block of cheese at the man's stomach causing "substantial pain," police said.

It was unknown what type of cheese it was or what the argument was about, police said.

The man was charged with assault and harassment and was released without bail.

His attorney did not immediately return a call for comment.
