Fridley dad stabbed in chest by 13-year-old son

A 47-year-old man from Fridley, Minn. is in critical condition after he was stabbed in the chest by his 13-year-old son during an argument at the family's home. Officers responded to a "heavy domestic" situation on the 5200 block of Lincoln Street, where they found the father with a stab wound to his chest.

Officers determined there was an alcohol-fueled dispute between several adults in the home, including a husband and wife. The argument escalated to the point of a physical altercation, and the 13-year-old boy jumped in and stabbed his father in the chest with a large knife.

The father was taken to Hennepin County Medical Center, where he was listed in critical condition Monday afternoon. The boy was taken to the Lino Lakes Juvenile Detention Center, and the case is being reviewed by the Anoka County attorney's office for criminal charges.
