An alleged dispute among two neighbors in Pataskala escalated Thursday morning into a stabbing, in which three people were transported to the hospital.

Pataskala Detective Bradley Ramsey said it is unclear from witness statements who started the confrontation. Pataskala police received the call at 5:24 a.m. Upon arrival, they found three people injured.

Heather Ebie, 37, of 12890 Broad Street, was hurt the worst, with four wounds to her head, chest and abdomen. Richard Zedekr, 30, of 12890 Broad Street, had his hand cut on both sides, Ramsey said. Leah Radford, 44, of 12786 Broad Street, sustained a single stab wound.

Ramsey said the two homes share a driveway, which is where the incident occurred.

No charges had been filed at press time.
