An Ohio State student stabbed another OSU student during a dispute over the victim’s dog, a Columbus Division of Police report states.

Zheng Chen, a 22-year-old finance major, told Columbus Police he was stabbed by Austin Farley, a 20-year-old economics major, at an off-campus apartment Wednesday night.

The stabbing occured outside Farley’s apartment at 22 E. 12th Ave. just before 11 p.m., according to the report.

Farley was arrested and charged with felonious assault.

Farley is currently being held at the Franklin County Jail, a Franklin County Jail dispatcher said. Farley’s bond has been granted and he will likely be released Friday night, the dispatcher said.

The report does not state the severity of Chen’s injuries and didn’t say if he went to the hospital.

The Lantern reached out to both Chen and Farley via email Friday night but has not yet received a response from either person.
