The quality of police training academies in Ohio and the need for stronger statewide training standards are among the issues an attorney general’s committee is considering as it explores possible changes to the way Ohio trains police officers.
Police Arrest Man In Columbus State Stabbing
Administrators at Columbus State Community College say police have arrested the man who reportedly ran into a campus hall and stabbed an instructor.
Columbus State spokesman David Wayne says 45-year-old Isaac Rotich was arrested Monday evening after officials called him a person of interest in the morning stabbing of a part-time statistics professor. The professor, who was stabbed in the stomach, was taken to Grant Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries.
Wayne says Rotich is not a student, but the two men know each other.
“This is not a random act. It was somebody who came onto our campus.”
Wayne says Rotich will be charged with felonious assault. School officials say they don’t yet know a motive.
The stabbing occurred in the first-floor lobby of Davidson Hall, a general building with classes and offices.
