MANCHESTER, N.J. (AP) - Police say an 85-year-old New Jersey man stabbed his son in the stomach with a large knife after an argument between the two.

Police Capt. Todd Malland says officers were called to a Manchester Township home around 6 a.m. Wednesday for a report of a stabbing.

He says 58-year-old John Brescia had disarmed his father, Victor, and secured himself in the home before officers arrived.
