A felonious assault was reported near Ohio State’s campus Thursday evening after a woman was stabbed in the neck.
The Columbus Division of Police has a suspect in custody, and the victim is currently in stable condition at OSU’s Wexner Medical Center, said Sgt. Rich Weiner, a spokesman for Columbus Police.
Officers were dispatched at 5:41 p.m. to East 16th Avenue and North Pearl Street, where they arrested Angelica Ann Marie Hubbard with a knife in her hand, Weiner said.
The victim, Saquella Sejuan Harris, was with Hubbard’s ex-boyfriend, and when Hubbard saw Harris and the boyfriend, she started to fight Harris, Weiner said. Both were unarmed at the time, and Hubbard stopped fighting to leave.
Hubbard then proceeded to steal a knife from a nearby store, found Harris again and stabbed her in the neck, Weiner said. Harris was rushed to the medical center in critical condition but has since been stabilized.
Hubbard was charged with felonious assault and more charges are pending on further investigation, Weiner said.
The Lantern was unable to confirm as of Friday evening if either woman is currently enrolled as a student at OSU.
