Cops: New Haven Man Stabs Son in TV Dispute


NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) — A New Haven man is charged with stabbing one of his twin adult sons after they asked him to turn down the volume on a television.

Sixty-six-year-old Alfonse Colombo was charged Monday with first-degree assault, threatening and breach of peace. He’s detained on $75,000 bail.

Police say Colombo became angry when his sons asked him to turn down the TV at his home and grabbed a knife. Authorities say he slashed his 27-year-old son, Dominic, across the fingers and stabbed him through the hand.

Police say Colombo told officers he warned his son he would “cut” him if he touched the volume and his son “got what he wanted.” Dominic Colombo and his brother, Vincenzo, told police their father was drunk.

It’s not clear if Alfonse Colombo has a lawyer.
