The Muskingum County Sheriff’s Office says an adult male is in custody after a stabbing in Zanesville last night.

Crews were dispatched to 1175 Ellis Dam Road around 8 p.m. for a dispute between neighbors. Deputy Tim Matheney says when they arrived at the scene, they found a 15-year-old juvenile who had been stabbed and had a one-inch incision. Captain Jeff LeCocq says the teen was taken to Good Samaritan Hospital where he was treated and released.

The man is being held in the Muskingum County Jail. Captain LeCocq says he cannot release his name until formal charges are filed, which he expects to take place sometime tomorrow.

He says he’s not sure if the neighbors have had any other disputes in the past.
