FRIDLEY, Minn. (AP) - A 13-year-old Fridley boy is in custody after police say he stabbed his father in the chest while intervening in a fight between his parents.

The Anoka County sheriff’s office says the 47-year-old father is listed in critical condition at Hennepin County Medical Center.

The Star Tribune (https://strib.mn/1AJTvqv ) reports the boy was taken to the Lino Lakes Juvenile Detention Center while prosecutors review the case.

Fridley police responded early Monday to a 911 call about a “heavy domestic.”

According to the sheriff’s office, a domestic argument was taking place among several adults in the home, including a husband and wife who had been drinking.

When the argument escalated to a physical altercation, authorities say the boy attacked his father with the knife.

Fridley police and the sheriff’s office are investigating.
