A 26-year-old Ottawa man is facing a felony aggravated battery charge in connection with a Saturday night stabbing that left another Ottawa man injured.

A 26-year-old Ottawa man is facing a felony aggravated battery charge in connection with a Saturday night stabbing that left another Ottawa man injured.

The stabbing in the 800 block of South Sycamore Street was not a random act of violence, Capt. Adam Weingartner, with the Ottawa Police Department, said.

Cameron Hartman, 24, told police he was stabbed after an argument with Ferris Fuller turned into a physical altercation, Weingartner said.

“I wouldn’t call them friends, but they did know each other,” Weingartner said.

Ottawa police officers and Franklin County Sheriff’s deputies responded to the reported stabbing about 11:41 p.m. Saturday, where they found Hartman, police said. Officers later located Fuller near the intersection of East Eighth and South Oak streets and arrested him in connection with the stabbing, a police department news release said.

Hartman was taken to Overland Park Regional Medical Center where he was treated and released, a police department news release said.

Fuller has a record of criminal charges, including an aggravated robbery charge in November 2008, as well as a driving under the influence charge in 2012, according to court documents. Fuller also has several charges for various offenses as a youth, according to court documents.

Fuller was charged Monday with a felony count of aggravated battery and is set to make his first appearance at 1 p.m. Wednesday in front of Judge Kevin Kimball in Franklin County District Court, 301 S. Main St., Ottawa.

He now is being held at the Franklin County Adult Detention Center, 305 S. Main St., Ottawa, awaiting his court appearance.
