    An eastern Pennsylvania man is charged with trying to pass his 13-year-old daughter a knife during a fight.

    The Morning Call reports that 44-year-old Ivan Capetillo is charged with criminal solicitation to commit aggravated assault and corruption of minors.

    Police say an investigation began last month after someone contacted authorities about an alleged incident near Dodd Elementary School.

    A juvenile, whose name was not released, told police that during a fight Capetillo was overheard telling his 13-year-old daughter to cut the other girl.

    Police interviewed several witnesses and determined that Capetillo had a knife and tried to hand it to his daughter.

    He was sent Thursday to Lehigh County Prison under $10,000 bail. It wasn't clear whether he had an attorney.
