A Bay Area boy has been arrested in connection with the stabbing death of his father, authorities said.

Police were called to a home in the city of Brentwood shortly before 10 a.m. Saturday to investigate a reported stabbing.

Officers found a 37-year-old man who had been stabbed multiple times. The man, who has not been identified, was transported to a local hospital, where he died from his injuries, according to a release from the Brentwood Police Department.


Police said the man was repeatedly stabbed during an altercation with his son, who is a minor. Investigators recovered the weapon they say was used in the attack, and police arrested the boy, who has also not been identified.
