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.
