A Hope man is accused off stabbing a man during a dispute Monday afternoon in downtown Columbus.

Columbus officers were called to a reported disturbance in the 900 block of 11th Street at about 3:50 p.m. Monday afternoon. A victim had been stabbed in the leg with a box cutter and told officers that he and 28-year-old Daniel T. Beeker II  had been in an argument when the stabbing happened.

Beeker then broke out a second floor window and jumped off the roof to escape. Police found Beeker near 11th and Sycamore streets. He had suffered injuries to his head and face. He was taken to Columbus Regional Hospital for treatment before being arrested on a preliminary charge of battery resulting in bodily injury.
