CASA GRANDE, Ariz. -- A man is in custody, accused of stabbing his mother's boyfriend in Casa Grande and then forcing his 6-year-old nephew to flee with him.

Casa Grande police said 40-year-old Angelo Martinez is being held on suspicion of aggravated assault, kidnapping, child abuse and criminal damage. He was arrested late Sunday.

They said Martinez and his mother's boyfriend were involved in a confrontation earlier Sunday at a home in Casa Grande.

He's accused of stabbing the man later and then making his nephew leave with him to the nearby desert.

The man was treated at a Phoenix-area hospital. His name hasn't been released.

Police and Pinal County Sheriff's deputies found the nephew uninjured under a tree.
