CASA GRANDE, Arizona — A man is in custody for allegedly stabbing his mother's boyfriend in Casa Grande and then forcing his 6-year-old nephew to flee with him.
Casa Grande police say 40-year-old Angelo Martinez is being held on suspicion of aggravated assault, kidnapping, child abuse and criminal damage.
They say Martinez and his mother's boyfriend were involved in a confrontation earlier Sunday at a home in Casa Grande.
He's accused of stabbing the man later and then taking his nephew with him as he fled into the nearby desert.
The man was treated at a Phoenix-area hospital and released. His name hasn't been released.
Police and Pinal County Sheriff's deputies found the nephew uninjured under a tree.
Martinez was arrested late Sunday.
Police didn't immediately know Monday if Martinez has legal representation yet.
