Stabbing pits in-laws against each other

For many people, in-laws are a pain in the neck, but on Monday one such relative took the term literally. According to a police report filed by nineteen year old Dennis Mai, around eight o’clock on Monday night his brother-in-law, Nelson Diaz, came to their house. Mai says when Diaz began arguing with his mother, his father, John Hoare, stepped in and told the man to leave. That pronouncement led to a fight between the two men in which Diaz took out an ice pick and stabbed his father-in-law to the side of the head and upper arm. When Mai tried to break up the scuffle, he was stabbed eight times to the arm, chest, stomach, back and shoulder. After inflicting the injuries, Diaz ran out of the yard and into a waiting car being driven by his brother, Danny Diaz. Police are looking for both men. A doctor has certified the injuries sustained by father and son as wounding.

That same night police were called to the K.H.M.H. where they found seventeen year old Darwin Torres with a stab wound to the upper back. Torres related that around six-thirty he was standing at the corner of Butterfly Lane and Jane Usher Boulevard when someone he knows only as Enrique came from behind and stabbed him with a knife. The teen says he does not know why he was targeted. Torres remains admitted to the hospital in critical condition. Police have detained a thirteen year old pending charges.
