FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- A man was arrested after he stabbed his father during an argument at a home in northeast Fresno on Tuesday night, according to the Fresno Police Department.

The stabbing happened around 5:30 pm in the area of Bond Street and Gettysburg Avenue.

As the fight spilled out into the patio area, investigators say the son grabbed a knife and stabbed his dad several times, causing cuts to his arm.

The father was taken to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

The suspect was arrested and is also being treated at the hospital for cuts on his hands.
