A verbal family argument looks to have gone unresolved Tuesday night after Manchester Township police say an 85-year old resident allegedly stabbed his 58-year old son in the stomach with a knife Wednesday morning.

The son was able to disarm his father and get away before police arrived at the Robin Street home around 6 am.

Victor Brescia was placed under arrest and charged.

His son john was hospitalized with non-life threatening injuries.

An overwhelming amount of New Jerseyans support increased gun control.

A new Quinnipiac University poll shows 96 percent want background checks for all gun buyers.

The poll also finds that New Jerseyans don't think more guns will lead to a safer state.

"63-percent say it would be less safe with more people having guns," said pollster Mickey Carroll.

On the flip side...34 percent of those polled think it's too difficult to purchase a gun in New Jersey.

You might not be aware of it but water companies across the Garden State are doing the same type of testing year round.
