CLEVES, Ohio (WXIX) - Two people were arrested Sunday after a verbal argument led to a stabbing incident, according to Hamilton County Sheriff Charmaine McGuffey.

Officers were dispatched to a Pontius Avenue house around 11:20 a.m. where they found Cody Ray Otto, 19, with stab wounds and Ron Sipple, 42, with minor injuries in a resident’s home.

Sipple and Otto were taken to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries, McGuffey confirmed.

According to a follow-up investigation, Sipple and Otto forced their way inside the Pontius Avenue home, sparking a verbal and physical altercation.
