A man is in good condition after he was stabbed in the head by his brother in Knoxville early Tuesday, Pittsburgh police said.

Police charged Kwesi Weaver, 27, with aggravated assault and terroristic threats. As an argument between the two over rent escalated, Weaver pulled out a pocket knife and threatened to kill his brother, Lt. Larry Scirotto said.

Weaver cut him in the head and hand at about 12:40 a.m. at the home the two share on Reifert Street, Scirotto said.

Police responded to a 911 call and found Weaver a short distance away from the home, covered in blood, Scirotto said. He was arrested without incident.
