Police say a man stabbed his own father to stop his father from assaulting his mother.
Investigators say the father was beating the mother so the son stabbed him in the back twice.
It happened overnight near 67th Avenue and Olive.
The injuries were not life-threatening.
Police said the mother suffered bruises and the father will likely face charges. They're still determining if the son will be charged.
