COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - A quarrel between neighbors ends with one being stabbed in the forehead.

It happened Saturday night on 10th Street in between Illges Road and Lawyers Lane in Columbus.

Tony Milner, 40, tells police he had a fight with his neighbor, 47-year-old Elijah Huff, in the street in front of his house over $20.

Milner says Huff lunged at him with a butcher knife, leaving a puncture wound on his forehead.

Huff says Milner ran up on him with a broom stick but had no idea how he got the stab wound. Elijah Huff was arrested and charged with aggravated assault. Tony Milner refused medical treatment.

Milner's 11-year-old son watched the whole incident play out, according to reports.
