A Columbus man is being accused of cutting two people with a knife during a dispute last night in downtown Columbus.

Columbus police are reporting that they were called to a disturbance at a home, where two people said they were cut in the stomach with a knife as they argued with 57-year-old Eddie J. Brown of Columbus. That was at about 8:45 p.m. Sunday night in the 1400 block of Chestnut Street.

Police found Brown near 11th and California Streets and after a brief scuffle, he was taken into custody. He is facing preliminary charges of battery with a deadly weapon and resisting law enforcement.

The victims did not suffer life-threatening injuries and they were treated at the scene by paramedics.
