Father Stabs Teen After Catching Him in Bed with 13-year-old Daughter

Edward Broaster

A thirty-seven year old and a sixteen year old resident of Sand Hill are facing criminal charges in connection with a stabbing incident in the village on Monday afternoon. Sometime after one p.m., the father of a thirteen year old girl surprised the sixteen year old committing unlawful sexual intercourse with his daughter at their home in the village. The enraged father reportedly stabbed the minor twice to his abdomen with a knife; for this, he will be charged for wounding. But the sixteen year old boy, according to police, will also be charged for the indecent offense against the female minor. The Social Services Department has been working closely with the police department on this rather sensitive case and today, Regional Commander of the Eastern Division South, Senior Superintendent Edward Broaster, told News Five about the incident. 

 

Sr. Supt. Edward Broaster, Regional Commander, Eastern Division South

“We received reports from Sand Hill that there was a stabbing incident. The police visited a residence where they found the minor, sixteen year old, who was stabbed twice to the navel area. He was taken to the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital; he was treated and released this morning…treated for the two wounds that he received. The individual that did it has been detained and will be facing charges for damage to property as well as causing the wound to the young person.”

“Sir we understand that acid was used also on the minor. Is that so?”

 

Sr. Supt. Edward Broaster

“No, no; that was not the case.”

 

Duane Moody

“What transpired sir? What led to these actions taken against the minor?”

 

Sr. Supt. Edward Broaster

“Well, the offender in this case, who inflicted the stab wound, went home and found the minor having sex with his daughter who is a minor as well.”

 

Duane Moody

“Sir, the suspect, I understand that he has been detained by police pending charges. Could you talk to us on that? What charges will be levied against this man?”

 

Sr. Supt. Edward Broaster

“He will be charged for damage to property and wounding.”

 

Duane Moody

“The weapon has been recovered?”

 

Sr. Supt. Edward Broaster

“I cannot say at this time; I was not briefed whether or not the knife was recovered.”

 

Duane Moody

“Sir in this case, could you talk to us about what police will be doing in reference to the sixteen year old? We know that he is a victim, but…”

 

Sr. Supt. Edward Broaster

“He will also be charged for unlawful carnal knowledge.”

 

Duane Moody

“That is all that is against this minor at this point in time?”

 

Sr. Supt. Edward Broaster

“Yes. Both committed themselves and broke the law so both will be dealt with.”

 

Duane Moody

“As to the female minor, what will be done in reference to her? Will she be handed over to Human Services? How would you deal with a case like this?”

 

Sr. Supt. Edward Broaster

“No, the Social Department is working along with our police officers in dealing with the issue, but it is not a thing that she will be handed over to Social Services. She has both parents living with her at home.”
