Son stabbed father at Walmart Friday night


A man was stabbed after a family altercation Friday night at the Walmart on Main Street in Lewisville. Police received the call at 10:09 p.m., which LPD Capt. Casey Carter said originally came in as an assault call.

Carter said the two involved were a father and son, and that the son had stabbed the father with a pointed object.

Christopher Aaron Young, 29, is held in Lewisville Jail, charged with aggravated assault on a family member with a weapon. His bond is set at $25,000.

Young’s criminal record shows this not to be his first time charged with family violence. In 2011, he was arrested on two counts of family violence, mischief, and marijuana possession, and served 6 months in jail. The victim told police that his son suffers from mental illness.

Radio recordings indicated the victim received lacerations to his left side, but remained conscious and breathing. Lewisville Fire Department medics transported him to Denton Regional Hospital for treatment. Another of the victim’s sons posted on Facebook Saturday morning that he had seen his father, and that he was in stable condition.
