Man Stabs Father, Cut Off OWN HANDS

The bloody scene played out Monday in the northern California city of Redding, in a neighborhood close to a municipal airport in that city.

According to police, what began as a verbal fight between family members at some point became physical. Based on interviews, the sheriff’s office alleged that the 27-year-old son stabbed his father multiple times with scissors. Then, the sheriff’s office said a press release, Jason Dunn mutilated himself by using a radial-arm saw to sever his hands.

Neighbors heard the altercation, as did an unnamed witness who contacted authorities, according to Gardner.

Gary Rinehart told CNN affiliate KRCR that he saw both men being wheeled from the scene into separate ambulances. The first, the son, had “a lot of blood at the end of his arms, like his hands weren’t there.” The second, the father, had “blood in the upper area.”
