Police said an unidentified person was stabbed at Charlie Bear: Land of Dance, a dance club located at 1562 N. High St. in the South Campus Gateway, early Monday morning.
According to a report from 10TV, the stabbing occurred shortly before 2 a.m. Monday. After the incident, the victim was reportedly driven to and dropped off at OhioHealth Grant Medical Center in a white Honda Accord.
Representatives from the Columbus Division of Police and Charlie Bear did not immediately respond to The Lantern’s requests for comment Monday.
Ohio State Police Deputy Chief Richard Morman said his department was “somewhat knowledgeable” of the incident but could not confirm the stabbing.
Dave Isaacs, a spokesman from OSU’s Office of Student Life, said he did not believe the victim was a student but could not confirm whether the incident occurred.
Olivia Stranges, a third-year in biology, said the report of the stabbing is “really frightening” because of its proximity to campus.
“It’s definitely a scary thing,” Stranges said.
Jonny Palay, a first-year in business marketing, said he tries not to walk alone at night in the South Campus Gateway.
“It makes me more aware,” Palay said. “I’ve always been trying to walk in groups, especially in that area.”
