Police in Tokyo's Toshima Ward said Sunday they have arrested a 15-year-old boy on a charge of attempted murder after he stabbed his father.

According to police, the victim, who is in his 50s, called 119 at around 8 a.m. Sunday, saying that he had been stabbed in the stomach, TBS reported.

Police rushed to the scene and found the man bleeding from stab wounds to the stomach. He was taken to hospital where he remains in a serious condition.

The man's son, who was also at home, has admitted to stabbing his father, but has so far given no motive, police said.

I hope Dad recovers, and that they both get the help that they need to find out why this happened and fix it.

Either he'd been abused and couldn't take it anymore, or Dad said stop playing games and texting.

Stubbing your parent is a crime! However it depends on the situation leading up to the outburst!

If that were my son, he'd have to find somewhere else to live once the police release him (and they will). I love you, and I forgive you, but I'm not going to walk on eggshells and look over my shoulder the rest of my life. Sorry, but you crossed the line.

Depends what you did to your son.

If nothing, I'd agree but, as usual, I'd also say there's more info that we need to have before judging.

I agree that we need more information. But no matter the kids motivation, he still stabbed his father more than once. Unless he did it defending himself during an assault, then it's likely unjustified. If he did it just because he was pissed at his father, then what's to say he won't do something worse next time he's mad, like beating him with a baseball bat while he's sleeping.

How angry can you get to actually stab someone?
