Police attended the home of Kunzweiler at around 2pm on Tuesday, following a report "in reference to a disturbance and an assault related to his daughter," Tulsa Police Captain Richard Meulenberg said in a statement.


Mr Kunzweiler and his 30-year-old daughter, Jennifer Kunzweiler, were both taken to hospital for treatment for non-life-threatening injuries following the "mental health crisis," according to Captain Meulenberg.



Meulenberg said: "What happened was his daughter and he got into an altercation of sorts where she had stabbed him. "The injury stemmed from a potential mental health crisis on the daughter's side, and then that led to the assault on her father."


He added that firefighters had to wrestle "with the daughter to get her under control" and the police department's "family violence unit and our crime unit are investigating this case like any other case."
