Elderly man stabs his "unbearable" son

  • The 72-year old was arrested and his son was taken to hospital

Police have arrested a 72-year-old man for stabbing his son during an argument because living with him was "unbearable". The son, 46, was admitted to hospital with two stab wounds to his stomach.

The older man, whose face was bruised, claimed that his son is a drug addict, had punched him when he came home and that he had reacted violently because he couldn't stand the situation any more.

He said his son was frequently aggressive, and made life unbearable for him and his wife, who has mental problems.
