A 34-year-old Columbus man is in stable condition at the Midtown Medical Center after getting struck in the face Wednesday night by a stranger at the intersection of 28th Avenue and Alford Street, according to Columbus police.

The offenders used an unspecified object to inflict a laceration near his left eye, police said about the incident that occurred approximately at 9:15 p.m.
