SPRINGFIELD, Ore. -- A father was attacked by his son with a knife in Springfield Friday night, police said.
The suspect was identified as 31-year-old Aaron James Montoya. The victim is his 52-year-old father who had several small cuts to his head and hand but didn't go to the hospital.
Officials said they received multiple calls about a man stabbing another man at 28th Street and Centennial Boulevard.
Investigators said Montoya's father, his wife and daughter arrived home to find the glass door to their residence broken. They could tell someone was inside but couldn't see who it was.
Montoya came out of the house armed with the kitchen knife and began attacking his father, who was eventually able to tackle Montoya to the ground. His daughter held Montoya down until police arrived.
The first officer to arrive, Officer Robert Conrad, found the suspect was being held down on the ground by a woman who was later identified as Montoya's sister. The woman was yelling that the suspect still had the knife. A male passerby was helping hold the suspect’s arm to the ground.
Conrad removed the knife and took the suspect into custody.
Officials said Montoya did not live at the residence and was not allowed to be on the property. Montoya was lodged at the Lane County Jail for Assault, Burglary, Unlawful Use of a Weapon and Disorderly Conduct.
Anyone who may have witnessed the incident is requested to contact the Springfield Police Department at 541-726-3714.
