A Riverside man allegedly stabbed his adult son during a confrontation Friday in the suspect’s home, police said.

The attack was reported about 10:55 a.m. in the 5000 block of Lawndale Avenue, just west of Del Mar Way, according to the Riverside Police Department.

The circumstances were not immediately clear, but police spokesman Officer Ryan Railsback confirmed that the victim, whose identity was not disclosed, suffered what appeared to be a non-life-threatening wound.

Railsback said that the suspect, whose identity also was not released, was “safely detained” within minutes of patrol officers reaching the residence.

The victim was taken to Riverside Community Hospital for treatment.

Detectives were called to the location to investigate further.
