NEWPORT NEWS, Va. (WAVY) - Police say a Newport News man was stabbed in the back by an 18-year-old acquaintance of his 15-year-old daughter.
According to Harold Eley with the Newport News Police Department, police responded to a stabbing just before 7 p.m. Wednesday evening at the intersection of Belgrave Road and Malden Lane.
Eley said the man in his early 60s is the father of a teen girl who had a protective order against the 18-year-old who stabbed her father. The two men had gotten into the fight and the older man was taken to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
Police found 18-year-old Taren A. Burkett Wednesday evening in a car close to the scene of the incident. He was arrested and charged with aggravated assault against the victim and intimidation against the young girl.
