An altercation in Springfield, Missouri led to a stabbing Saturday afternoon, according to police.

Officials say a person was stabbed around 3:30pm outside of his hotel, the Motel 6 on North Glenstone Avenue.

Authorities say two men were walking their dogs on the opposite of a privacy fence separating the properties of an EconoLodge and a Motel 6.

There was a hole in the fence, and the two dogs started to bark at each other until they began to fight one another.

After the dog owners were able to separate the dogs, the two men started to argue about the dogs, which only elevated the situation until one of the men stabbed the other. The victim suffered a non-life-threatening injury and was later transported to an area hospital.

Officials say the stabbing victim was renting a room at the Motel 6, and the suspect had a room at the EconoLodge. Neither man knows the other, but the suspect was taken into custody.

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.

Keep reading to see if your favorite beach town made the cut.
