HAMILTON - A man is accused of stabbing his brother - and their father is accused of assaulting a police officer Wednesday.

Officer Carla Holzhauer, 28, sustained no serious injuries in the attack in the 300 block of South Seventh Street, said Sgt. Thomas E. Kilgour, police spokesman.

The incident occurred around 1:15 a.m., when Holzhauer was called to investigate a stabbing.

Russell Lee Caldwell, 28, suffered a 5-inch cut on his lower back and was treated at Fort Hamilton Hospital, a report says.

Caldwell's 52-year-old father, who also is named Russell, confronted Holzhauer and told her she couldn't come onto his property, Kilgour said.

The elder Caldwell was arrested and charged with assault on a police officer, resisting arrest, obstructing official business and aggravated robbery for allegedly taking her firearm, Kilgour said.

Brandon Oneal Caldwell, 24, was arrested on charges of felonious assault and domestic violence. He also faces a charge of drug abuse.
