A 22-year-old Columbus man was transported to St. Francis Hospital with a collapsed left lung Thursday evening after being stabbed in his chest at the intersection of Samson Avenue and King Street, authorities said.
Columbus Police continue to search for 33-year-old Princess Clara Carrion, the woman accused of puncturing the victim’s chest with a pocket knife during an altercation. She was issued arrest warrants for aggravated assault and possession of a dangerous weapon during the commission of a crime.
Authorities said they were called to the hospital around 6:31 p.m. Thursday after the man arrived with a stab wound.
With a one-inch puncture wound to the left side of his chest, the victim told police that he and Carrion argued about him having company over at the house while she was gone.
“(The victim) stated Ms. Carrion became extremely angry and began throwing his property out in the yard,” police wrote in an incident report. “(The victim) stated that during the argument, Ms. Carrion pulled out a pocket knife and stabbed in the chest and somehow ripped his shirt off of him.”
Officials located a witness who reported seeing the victim and suspect argue “up and down the street” earlier that day.
Authorities said they came across blood droplets and a gray tank top. There was a one-inch incision on the left portion of the shirt consistent with the victim’s injury, officers noted.
