A man was struck in the face with an ax on Dunhill Drive Monday afternoon after several men began a verbal fight at one of the residences, according to a Columbus Police Department report. Police arrived at the 3600 block of Dunhill Drive at about 1:15 p.m. after receiving reports of an aggravated assault. Witnesses on the scene told police that several men, who were given no description in the report, entered one of the residences and started an argument.
