TOTTORI (TR) – Tottori Prefectural Police last week arrested a teenage boy over the alleged stabbing of his father at their residence in the town of Daisencho, reports the Sankei Shimbun (Nov. 6).
At around 7:50 p.m. on November 5, the boy, 17, allegedly stabbed his father in his left side in the living room.
The victim was transported to a hospital in a conscious state. His condition is not considered life-threatening, police said.
