16-year-old boy stabs father

A 16-year-old boy was arrested for attempted murder on Monday night after he allegedly stabbed his father at their Suita City apartment.

The boy’s younger sister called police just before 8 p.m. and told them her brother had stabbed her father. Police rushed to the home and found the man, a teacher at a school for the visually impaired, crouching on the ground outside the apartment building and bleeding from his neck. He was taken to hospital where he is in a stable but serious condition.

His son, a first-year high school student, was found in the entrance of the apartment and told police he stabbed his father. A bloodied knife with a blade of nearly 20 centimeters was found in the home, and the boy was arrested.

He told police his father was angry with him for driving the family car without a license and getting in an accident a few days ago. The boy said his father had also gotten angry with his friend he went driving with in the car, and who was at the home on Monday night.

Police quoted the boy as saying: “My father hit me in the face a couple of times and I thought he was going to hit my friend as well. I wanted to kill him.”
