A 15-year-old boy is on the run and his 17-year-old brother is serious condition following a "Cain-and-Abel" stabbing in Upper Darby Saturday, said police Superintendent Michael Chitwood.

Police said the brothers were alone in their house on St. Laurence Road near West Chester Pike around 4:30 p.m. when they began fighting about money the 17-year-old allegedly owed to his 15-year-old brother.

At some point, the younger teen retrieved a butcher knife and began swinging it at the 17-year-old, telling him he was going to kill him, Chitwood said. The elder boy put up his left arm in a defensive move and almost had his hand severed off, police said. He then put up his other arm and the 15-year-old caused a significant gash to that as well, Chitwood said.

The 17-year-old boy, whose identity was not released, was taken to the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, where he remains in serious condition, police said.

His brother, whom police have identified as Tyree Wilson, fled the scene and has yet to be apprehended. Chitwood said when he is, Wilson will be charged as an adult with aggravated assault and related offensives, given the severity of the wounds he caused to his brother.

"He's lucky he didn't kill him. If the kid didn't defensively put the block up, he would have killed him," Chitwood said. "The tragedy is that here's two brothers and now one's almost dead and the other is wanted over something stupid."
