A Bloomfield man was arrested on Wednesday after stabbing his father in the chest and seriously injuring him.
Carlos Cameron, 35, of Carpenter Lane, was arrested after he stabbed his 68-year-old father in the chest in front of a 12-year-old family member.
Police arrived on scene around 1:15 p.m. to find the father suffering from a stab wound.
Witnesses told police that there was an argument between Cameron and his father, which resulted in Cameron grabbing a kitchen knife and stabbing his father.
