Report: Man stabs sister's boyfriend
A 40-year-old New Port Richey man was arrested late Saturday on charges of attacking his sister's boyfriend while their children watched. According to a Pasco Sheriff's Office report, Javier Rodriguez, 6252 Massachusetts Ave., stepped into the middle of an argument between his sister and the boyfriend. Their names were not released. Rodriguez twice slapped the man, who punched Rodriguez, the report said. Rodriguez grabbed a knife from the kitchen table, the report said, but an 11-year-old pried it away. Rodriguez picked up another knife and went after the boyfriend, the report said. The boyfriend defended himself with an umbrella but was slashed. The man's injuries were not life threatening.
