At about 11:30 p.m. Wednesday, a 50-year-old man in the 9800 block 140 Street is believed to have attacked his 15-year-old son, pinning him down and allegedly choking him.

Police say the boy felt his life was in jeopardy, and reached for a pocket knife, unfolded it and stabbed his father in the stomach.

The father was taken to the hospital for non-life threatening treatment.

"He is expected to make a full recovery," said Surrey RCMP Sgt. Drew Grainger. "The father will be facing charges of assault on the son."
