WELLSVILLE - A village man is in a Pittsburgh hospital after reportedly being stabbed by his teen-age son Saturday morning.
Andy E. Baptiste, 34, 1009 Riverside Avenue, was stabbed in the neck just before 11:30 a.m. while sleeping, according to police Lt. Ed Wilson, who said his 14-year-old son allegedly used a paring knife to inflict the wound.
"Supposedly, (Baptiste) threatened the boy earlier, then the boy stabbed him while he was sleeping," Wilson said, adding a 911 call was made to the police at 11:28 a.m.
Baptiste was transported by ambulance to East Liverpool City Hospital then taken by helicopter ambulance to the unnamed Pittsburgh facility. Wilson was uncertain of his condition Saturday afternoon.
No charges had been filed against the juvenile, who was transported to the Tobin Center after the incident. He had recently come from New York to stay with his father, Wilson said.
The Bureau of Criminal Investigation and Identification was called in to process evidence at the Riverside Avenue home, and the incident remains under investigation by village police.
