"I hate to see it happen," said neighbor Steven Marion, "I really do."
Donald McDaniel, 38, claims it was self defense, telling Judge Pauley his dad actually pulled the knife on him first.
According to court documents, that's not the case.
The incident happened on Friday at a home on West Vine Street in Saint Albans.
Police say McDaniel punched his father, Russell McDaniel, several times during an argument. That's when police say McDaniel stabbed his father in the leg twice before fleeing from the scene.
"He needs to get straightened out and get off the drugs," said Marion, "and maybe it'll get him straightened up."
Kanawha County deputies found McDaniel along a roadway and say he was showing signs of a drug overdose.
He was taken to the hospital for evaluation.
And once released, McDaniel was arrested.
Neighbors say they hope the victim, McDaniel's own father, makes a full recovery.
"I hope that this is all behind him," said McDaniel, "I hope he doesn't have anymore trouble."
Family members tell Eyewitness News Russell is in good condition and is expected to be released from the hospital.

IT TELLS THE STORY OF A POCAHONTAS COUNTY FAMILY'S BATTLE AGAINST ALZHEIMER'S DISEASE.
EYEWITNESS NEWS ENTERTAINMENT REPORTER KENNIE BASS TELLS US HOW THE CHANGING WORLD OF MOVIE MAKING IS ALLOWING MORE INDEPENDENT EFFORTS TO MAKE THEIR WAY TO THE SCREEN.
Kennie Bass/Eyewitness News: Making a movie can be an expensive proposition. However, it's not as costly as it used to be.
The introduction of high definition digital cameras and editing equipment has allowed more independent filmmakers to realize their vision. Moving away from the expense of using actual film has opened the door for more projects to make it to the screen.
Kennie Bass/Eyewitness News: Arbogast and his wife Kim Dilts produced their film "Angel's Perch" on a bare bones budget that Steven Spielberg would have laughed at.
They raised money through the internet, gathering contributions from supporters who believed in their movie's message about dealing with Alzheimer's disease. They partnered with the Alzheimer's Association for more critical assistance and they even re-financed a car to get the money to make the film.
But, no matter how hard they worked, without the digital technology that's surfaced in the last ten years, their dream would have gone unrealized.
Kennie Bass/Eyewitness News: Arbogast and Dilts say digital filmmaking gives them a chance to share stories with a wide audience. It's opened a new window for original and daring independent work.
J.T. Arbogast/Writer/Producer/Actor: From social media, from Facebook to Twitter and our mailing list people have been with us from the very beginning. That audience now, who have been hungry for this film for two years, we're able to deliver it to them. We know who they are. We can go to different markets and say we have people here, we already know that they're here. Let's put it in the theater and bring it to them.
