ENCINITAS, Calif. (KGTV) — A verbal confrontation between a North County father and son turned violent after a knife was involved, leading to a stabbing.

A man and his son living in the 1100 block of Saxony Rd. got into an argument at about 4:30 p.m. Friday, the San Diego Sheriff's Department said.

The argument soon turned into a violent confrontation though, when one of the son reportedly stabbed his father, according to City News Service.

The father was taken to a nearby hospital with a single, non-life threatening stab wound.

Deputies were unable to find the man's son though, after searching the nearby area using K-9 officers and a SDSO helicopter.

SDSO was still trying to locate the suspect Saturday. His name and age were not released.
