A man was arrested after he allegedly stabbed his father and struck the victim with a car during an altercation in Leavenworth, a police spokesman said.

The incident was reported at 9:40 a.m. Sunday in the 500 block of Utah Street.

The suspect, a 29-year-old man, reportedly argued with his 46-year-old father regarding custody issues related to a child.

At some point, the suspect reportedly threatened suicide while armed with a knife, Leavenworth Police Chief Pat Kitchens said.

During the altercation, the suspect also allegedly threw a chair at his father. The suspect also is alleged to have kicked the victim in the face.

“The fight broke up,” Kitchens said. “The suspect tried to leave.”

But there was another physical altercation as the suspect attempted to leave in a 2005 Chevrolet Cavalier. The suspect allegedly tried to stab his father with a screwdriver. The suspect also is alleged to have used a knife in an attempt to stab his father.

At some point, the suspect put the car in reverse, and the vehicle struck the victim.

Kitchens said the victim was stabbed during the altercation and suffered other injuries. The victim was taken to the hospital in a private vehicle.

The suspect was arrested for allegations of aggravated battery and aggravated assault. He was taken to the hospital to be checked for suicidal issues and any injuries before he was transported to the Leavenworth County Jail, Kitchens said.
