Teen Stabs Father in Domestic Dispute

An overnight domestic dispute on Savannah's east side led to the stabbing of a man and the arrest of his daughter. About 12:15am, Savannah-Chatham police were called to a house at the corner of Louisiana and Delaware Avenues. When they arrived, officers found a man lying in the street with a stab wound under his arm which had cut an artery. They called for an ambulance and the victim was rushed to Memorial Health for treatment.

A teen tells officers the man is her father and had come to the house intoxicated. She says he began beating her, and she used a paring knife to stab him.

Police officers had her examined at Memorial Health for injuries, then took her to the Chatham County jail on charges of aggravated assault.

At last report, the stabbing victim was still being treated. No names have been released yet.
