Deputies say a long-running quarrel between two men took a felonious turn when one threw a large folding pocket knife that hit another man Sunday morning in Huron.
The knife stuck into a Sandusky man, and its accused thrower currently sits in Erie County Jail.
Ryan Millis, 21, of the 7200 block of Darrow Road in Huron, was charged with felonious assault. The wounded man, Santana Trevino, 19, of the 300 block of Birchwood Drive in Sandusky, was transported to Firelands Regional Medical Center, where he received stitches and was later released.
Although the knife stuck into Trevino, the man Millis was quarreling with was Nick Wollf, 22, of the 100 block of Standard St. in Huron, witnesses told deputies.
Earlier in the night Millis and a friend were drinking at Knucklehead Saloon. At some point Millis got a call from another friend, Aaron Michel, who asked him to come to an apartment complex, Millis told deputies. When he and his friend walked out of the bar they spotted Michel, Trevino, Wollf and another man standing next to the building.
The group taunted the two men. Millis told deputies he felt threatened by the group so he took out his knife.
With the knife drawn and locked, Millis yelled "come get some," a sheriff report said.
"He threw the knife at Trevino and then got beat up," said Erie County sheriff Sgt. Jared Oliver.
Oliver said the knife stuck into Trevino's left side.
"The blade was about 31/2 inches long," he said. "I'm not sure how many stitches he got, but it was a pretty serious wound."
Witnesses told police Wollf and Millis got into a fight about a week ago.
"Ryan explained he was arrested by this agency on the 13th of this month for a fight he was in with Nick," a report said. "Ryan stated ever since then he still wanted to get even with Nick."
Ryan remained in Erie County Jail Tuesday on a $20,000 bond.
