Police say man stabbed son in law

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - A man is in custody Friday morning after police say he stabbed his son in law overnight in Knoxville.

It happened around 12:20 a.m. at 5937 West Pine Lane. Right now we don't know the condition of the victim, only that he was stabbed several times.

Authorities say the father in law then took off to his house at 5909 West Pine Lane and that's where officers arrested him without incident.

Police had a man in the back of their cruiser at the scene, but it's unclear if that was the suspect.

Police have not released any names.
