ST. CLOUD, Fla. (WFTV) -- Police in St. Cloud said a man was arrested after he stabbed his daughter with a sword during an altercation Friday night.

Dispatchers received a 911 call about the incident at a home on Holden Drive around 10 p.m.

According to investigators, a physical fight between the victim and her father, 44-year-old Juan Lovine, led to the stabbing. Lovine was armed with a sword when he stabbed his adult daughter, police said.
