Parents stabbed while sleeping; son, 21, arrested

The Associated PressJuly 15, 2014 

— Authorities have arrested a 21-year-old man on suspicion of stabbing his parents while they were sleeping in their Orange County home.

Garden Grove police Lt. Ben Stauffer says the mother, 51-year-old Anh Tran called police early Monday saying she and her husband had been attacked but managed to escape.

Stauffer says officers evacuated surrounding homes after the couple's son, Jason Le, failed to respond to police requests to come out.

Eventually officers forced their way inside and took Le into custody.

Tran and her husband, 56-year-old Hiep Le, were treated for stab wounds to their upper bodies.

Le was booked on suspicion of two counts of attempted murder. Detectives are trying to determine a motive.

Stauffer says the mother was in possession of the knife when officers arrived.
