BROCKTON – A Massachusetts teenager was arrested on Christmas day after police say he pulled a knife on his father because he did not receive an iPhone he wanted for Christmas. 18-year-old Alexander Torres was charged with assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, assault and battery and malicious damage to a motor vehicle, according to Brockton Police Lt. Bruce Zeidman.
“The suspect was fighting with everyone in the house and he pulled out a knife on his father,” Zeidman said.
Torres’ father was uninjured but the teen’s 24-year-old stepbrother was sent to Good Samaritan Medical Center, although police did not provide information as to why.
The teenage Torres was scheduled to be arraigned in Brockton District Court yesterday.
