Johnson County prosecutors on Friday charged a 37-year-old man with stabbing his grandfather during a fight Thursday morning at the elder man’s home in Fairway.

Brett Bauer was charged in Johnson County District Court with a domestic violence count of aggravated battery.

Police said the victim was stabbed in the chest, but his injuries were not believed to be life-threatening.

Officers were called about 7 a.m. to the home in the 6200 block of Howe Drive and discovered the victim.

Bauer ran when police arrived, but he was arrested a few blocks away.
