WEED, Calif. — Deputies with the Siskiyou County Sheriff's Office are investigating after a man living in a trailer park near Weed reported that he'd been stabbed by his adult son during a fight between the two.
Shortly before 1 p.m. on Saturday, deputies responded to a reported stabbing in the 4400-block of Highway 97 — a trailer park outside the city of Weed.
"The stab wound was allegedly sustained by a male adult after his son, also an adult, stabbed him during a physical altercation," the Sheriff's Office said.
The first deputy on the scene rendered aid to the father, then "detained" both him and his son. A second deputy arrived to help with questioning both men and gathering evidence. The investigation found that the men had gotten into a fight before the son used a "pocket-style knife" to stab his father.
"Both parties acknowledged their involvement in the physical altercation and both sustained what appeared to be visible injuries arising from the fight," the Sheriff's Office said.
The son, 21-year-old Daniel M. Hill, was arrested for assault with a deadly weapon. He was taken to a hospital prior to booking at the Siskiyou County Jail. The father was treated by emergency medical crews at the scene following first aid rendered by the deputy.
“This case is still under investigation and anyone with information about this case is urged to contact the SCSO’s 24-hour Dispatch Center at (530) 841-2900,” said Sheriff Jon Lopey.
