The 49-year-old dad was trying to break up a fight involving his son — when he was stabbed, according to police.

Police Chief Everette Robbins telling WWJ’s Charlie Langton that these groups gathered knew each other.

“At this point we are really not sure what the fight was about – we know that it was an ongoing argument between two juvenile groups and that they arrived at the scene in a vehicle – there was an altercation in the street. The father was stabbed and the suspect fled the scene,” said Robbins.

An 18-year-old man was arrested during a traffic stop in Taylor and will likely be charged with murder.

This is the first homicide in Huron Township since 2009. The homicide eight years ago happened at the same mobile home park.
