LITTLE COMPTON, R.I. (AP) — A teenager has been arrested after his father was found stabbed at a home in Little Compton.

Police said the 17-year-old boy was arrested without incident early Saturday morning after police were called to the home. They found a 50-year-old man bleeding from a stab wound to the neck.

The man was taken to a hospital in Fall River, Massachusetts, and later transferred to Rhode Island Hospital. His condition was not immediately known.

The teen was not identified because of his age. Police said he was taken to a state juvenile facility. He is expected to appear in family court in Providence on Monday to face a charge of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon with intent to commit murder.
