SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO AM) - Last night was a brutal evening for a Sioux Falls family of four when an eleven-year-old son stabbed his abusive 50-year-old father in the arm.
Officer Sam Clemens says the evening began when the wife protested Randall Scott Flack’s drinking by pouring his liquor down the drain.
Clemens says that’s when Flack allegedly took his wife into a bedroom and assaulted her. The boy responded by hitting his father in the back with a golf club. At one point, Clemens says, Flack had both his wife and son by the hair and was dragging them on the floor. The boy got a kitchen knife and stabbed his father in the forearm.
Clemens says before the stabbing, Flack had pushed the boy against the wall so hard it left bruises.
The mother, the boy and an eight year old daughter fled to neighbors and called police.
Flack is charged with felony child abuse and simple assault domestic
