Son Stabs Father to Death in Brooklyn Home: NYPD

A 56-year-old Brooklyn man was stabbed to death by his son during a violent argument, police said Sunday.

Mohammad Razzaq was stabbed in the neck at his East Third Street home and pronounced dead at the scene, investigators said.

Razzaq and his 19-year-old son, Hassan, allegedly engaged in a bitter argument at about 10 p.m. Saturday. Officers arrived at their Kensington apartment to find Razzaq dead on the floor.

Police tracked his injured and bleeding son to a neighborhood bodega, where they arrested him. He allegedly went to the store and asked for napkins to clean his bloody hands.

"He asks about napkin and he's got blood on his hand," store employee Negi Alasmali said.

Hassan Razzaq is being charged with second-degree murder and criminal possession of a weapon, police said.

One neighbor claims the father has been physically abusing his son for years, but police haven't confirmed that.

There was no information as to whether Razzaq has obtained a lawyer who could comment on the charges.
