Edward GoebelA Columbus man was arrested on charges including battery and drug possession after a stabbing over the weekend.

Police were called to the 4600 block of Breckenridge Drive at about 11:20 p.m. Saturday night and found a man holding a towel against his bleeding stomach, says Lt. Matt Harris, spokesman for the Columbus police. The victim said he had gotten into an argument with 46-year-old Edward J. Goebel and Goebel had stabbed him.

After taking Goebel into custody, they were searching for a knife when they allegedly found a box of marijuana and drug paraphernalia in a trash can, Harris said.

Goebel is facing preliminary charges of battery with serious bodily injury, possession of more than 30 grams of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.

The incident remains under investigation, Harris said.
