Two teenagers were stabbed, and a coach was attacked during a recent high school football practice.
Chesterfield County Police were called to Life Christian Academy’s earlier this week and said that a player on the team had been reprimanded by his coach and thrown out of practice. He then returned with his father and things began to escalate, according to WRIC.com.
The 17-year-old player reportedly began attacking his coach, so two of his teammates jumped in to help their coach. That’s when things escalated when the player’s father, 46-year-old Turon Savoy stabbed the two intervening teens in the face and chest multiple times.
The father fled the scene, but was later and arrested and now faces felony charges of malicious wounding.
Both players have since been released from the hospital and are expected to recover.
