An Augusta man is recuperating at a hospital after he was stabbed repeatedly by his stepson Monday evening.

According to Richmond County sheriff’s Lt. Blaise Dresser, Dave Singleton, 17, grabbed a large kitchen knife and chased his stepfather Frederick Freeman after an argument in their home on the 2400 block of Bristol Place Court around 8:40 p.m.

Freeman was transported to the hospital with stab wounds to his head, arms and torso.
