COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -  Columbus investigators say an argument between neighbors turned dangerous inside a mobile home park Saturday.

Fifty-four-year-old Charles Rias is behind bars, charged with aggravated assault after police say he stabbed another man several times.

It happened at 3:30 AM in a mobile home park at 800 Morris Road on the east end of Columbus.

We're told Rias was arguing with the victim, 42-year-old Emanuel Parker, over a woman when Rias allegedly stabbed Parker in the stomach multiple times with a screwdriver.

Police found the weapon on Rias when he was arrested.

Parker was taken to the Columbus Medical Center. He is listed in satisfactory condition.

Charles Rias is being held in the Muscogee County Jail.

He's scheduled to appear in Recorder's Court Monday on his aggravated assault charge.
