HESSTON, Kan. (KSNW) – A 16-year-old boy from Hesston was placed in detention Tuesday following an incident near U.S. 50 and Ridge Road.
At about 4:15 p.m, the teen allegedly stabbed his 55-year-old father while riding in a car.
“Dad was driving, son was in the back seat. They were going from Hesston to Newton,” said Kyle McCaskey, public information officer for Harvey County. “Father was talking to his son. Son was not saying anything. He reached forward and stabbed his dad in the shoulder, once, with a knife.”
The father pulled the car over, and the son walked away from the car. The conflict ended at that point. The father called 911.
Harvey County Sheriff’s deputies arrested the juvenile shortly after. The 16-year-old boy was placed in detention in Hutchinson.
“The father had non-life-threatening injuries,” McCaskey said.
Names haven’t been released.
The case has been forwarded to the Harvey County Attorney’s office for review, which hasn’t yet filed any formal charges.
