    Police are searching for a man who allegedly stabbed his teenage son and injured a woman on Friday in Sturbridge, Massachusetts.

    Authorities said officers responded to a home on Vinton Road at 6:50 p.m. where the teenager was in the driveway with a stab wound to his arm. He was taken to the University of Massachusetts Medical Center where he underwent surgery and is listed in stable condition.

    Also at the residence was a woman who police say needed to be transported to a nearby hospital with non life threatening injuries. It was unclear how she was injured.

    Police identified the suspect in the incident as Brent Young, 42. They said he fled the scene on foot with a self-inflicted wound to his neck area.

    "We do not know the extent or the seriousness of this self-inflicted injury," said Sturbridge Police Sergeant Kevin R. Mercier.

    Young is described as 6 feet two inches tall, approximately 150 pounds, with blue eyes and salt and pepper hair. He was last seen wearing blue jeans and black and white sneakers. Police said he may be shirtless.

    Police said Young was last seen at about 4:15 a.m. Saturday at the Pilot truck stop in Sturbridge. Search crews had been looking for him in a heavily wooded area prior to that.

    Anybody with information on Young's whereabouts can contact 911 or the Sturbridge Police Department at 508-347-2525.
