SOUTH MIAMI-DADE, FLA. (WSVN) - The owners of Knaus Berry Farm are recovering in the hospital after they were attacked by their son at their South Miami-Dade home, police said.
Miami-Dade police units responded to a violent domestic dispute at the victim’s home in the area of Southwest 248th Street and 157th Avenue, at around 8:20 p.m., Friday.
First responders arrived to find Rachel Knaus Grafe and Herbert Grafe suffering from injuries.
Investigators said the couple told officers that their son, Travis Ray Grafe, attacked them with a blunt object.
Paramedics with Miami-Dade Fire Rescue transported the victims to Jackson South Medical Center. Knaus Grafe was airlifted to the hospital and is listed in critical condition.
Police said Travis fled the scene but was taken into custody near the resident shortly after units arrived. He was hospitalized while in police custody.
As of Sunday night, Herbert is listed as stable and Knaus Grafe remains in critical condition but is improving.
Travis has been charged with attempted premeditated murder and attempted strong-arm robbery.
Knaus Berry Farm remained closed on Saturday and Sunday. A sign posted at the entrance reads, “Closed due to family emergency.”
On Presidents’ Day, the business reopened since the incident occurred but was not as busy as it normally would be on a holiday.
