Simpson suffered one stab wound on each shoulder and one to the right side of his chest, according to Lt. Troy Bankert. The injuries weren't considered life-threatening, he said.

Simpson was arguing with his 33-year-old son, Marcus Wilson, when Wilson went to another part of Simpson's home, retrieved a knife and attacked his father, according to Bankert.

Simpson was transported to York Hospital by ambulance, the lieutenant said.

Charges are being filed against Wilson, Bankert confirmed.
