Columbus police have charged a man with assault in a Wednesday incident they described as family violence.

Officers arrested Gregory Ivan Carston at an apartment at 2550 Wedgefield Court after police were called there at 7:39 p.m. “in reference to a domestic dispute involving an individual with a knife,” they reported.

The victim was another man, but investigators did not say whether the two are related.

Carston was charged with aggravated assault, battery, using a knife to commit a crime and obstructing a 911 call, police said.
