An alleged stalker who was confronted about his behavior reportedly used a knife and cut a man at 12:32 a.m. Oct. 1 on the 5000 block of Cobblestone Drive, according to Columbus Division of Police incident reports.
A man who told police he witnessed the stalking incident said he intended to confront the suspect and followed him on foot to the parking lot of a nearby business on the 2000 block of West Henderson Road.
The victim told police the suspect pulled a folding hunting-style knife from his clothing and began to swing it back and forth. The victim said he took off his shirt and threw it at the suspect, and the suspect cut him on the right wrist, resulting in a laceration.
The victim and a witness said the suspect then left the scene on foot.
A Columbus Division of Fire medic unit responded and treated the victim at the scene, but the victim declined to be transported to a hospital for additional treatment, reports said.
