Family Vehicle Dispute Leads to Stabbing

REDDING, Calif. - A 45-year-old Redding man was stabbed on Thursday morning in a family dispute outside of a residence on the 2500 block of Freebridge St.

Redding Police responded at around 7:55 a.m. and found the man with several non life threatening stab wounds to his head and neck area.

According to Redding Police, the officers were told that the fight was a result of a domestic dispute involving the man, his 42-year-old estranged wife and her 21-year-old son over a car.

The former husband and wife were arguing in front of a house while the woman's son was sitting in the back of the vehicle.

At some point, Redding Police said a knife was introduced and both the 45-year-old man and the 42-year-old woman received minor injuries.

Both were treated and released from Shasta Regional Medical Center on Thursday.

The incident is being classified as domestic violence and because of this, Redding Police said the names of the parties involved will remain confidential for the time being.

The case will be submitted to the Shasta County District Attorney's Office for review.
