A Hesston teen was placed in detention after allegedly stabbing his father.  It happened around 4:15 p.m. Tuesday on Highway 50 and Ridge Road.

The juvenile, who was riding in a car with his father, 55, allegedly reached from the back seat and stabbed his father who was driving from Hesston to Newton.

The father pulled the car over, and the son walked away from the vehicle. The conflict ended at that point and the father called 911.

Harvey County Sheriff’s Deputies arrested the boy, 16, and he was placed in detention in Hutchinson.

According to investigators, the father had non-life-threatening injuries.  Their names have not been released.

The case has been forwarded to the Harvey County Attorney’s office to determine if formal charges will be filed.
