Cupertino man slashes father with knife, detained by deputies

CUPERTINO (BCN) — A man suffered minor injuries when his mentally ill son slashed him with a knife in Cupertino Wednesday morning, a Santa Clara County sheriff’s spokesman said.

Deputies responded around 9:50 a.m. to a report of a family disturbance in the 10000 block of San Felipe Road, less than half a mile west of South Foothill Boulevard, according to sheriff’s Sgt. James Jensen.

A man slashed his father with a knife that was later seized by deputies, Jensen said.

The father was treated for a “very minor wound” at the scene, Jensen said.

The son was cooperative with investigators and was detained, according to Jensen.

No other details about the case were immediately available.
