On Christmas in Brockton, Mass., an 18-year old man was taken into custody after he (allegedly) pulled a knife on his father. He was apparently upset because he didn’t get an iPhone for the holiday season.
The 18-year old in question is Alexander Torres and though his father remains unharmed, his stepbrother had been taken to Good Samaritan Medical Center, though details have not been released on his status or why he was taken.
