Father, son stabbed in domestic dispute in New Castle
A man and his son were stabbed on Wednesday during a domestic dispute in New Castle.
Police were called shortly before 3:30 p.m. on a report of an argument between Joseph Bohizic and his son Terry Kohlmetz at a home in the 500 block of East Long Avenue, New Castle police Chief Robert A. Salem said.
Officers determined that Bohizic stabbed Kohlmetz in the buttocks, and it appears that Kohlmetz's girlfriend was trying to break up the altercation when Bohizic threatened her at knifepoint, Salem said. The girlfriend, who was not identified, then stabbed Bohizic in the chest before running upstairs and calling 911, Salem said.
Bohizic was flown to UPMC Presbyterian in Oakland, and Kohlmetz was taken to St. Elizabeth Hospital in Youngstown for treatment. Charges will be filed when the investigation is completed, Salem said.
Police did not release the ages of the men or discuss the extent of their injuries.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
