LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) — Monday afternoon, around 1:30, officers with the Lincoln Police Department (LPD) arrived at a home near Capitol Pkwy and ‘G’ Street for a family dispute.

The stepson, 16, tried to flee but was arrested just outside the home’s garage.

This all began when an argument unfolded between the 16-year-old and his mother. The teen reportedly became aggressive and attempted to assault her. The victim, trying to protect his wife, intervened.

Struggling with his step-father, at one point the teen grabbed a hammer but was disarmed. He then got a chef’s knife from the kitchen and began stabbing his step-father.
