Two teenagers who refused to help their father shovel snow from the driveway allegedly attacked him with shovels, Stamford police said.

The father was shoveling the driveway Monday with his 10-year-old son and asked his two teenage sons to help, police say.

The teenagers got into an argument and the 19-year-old hit his father in the head with a shovel. The blow knocked the father to the ground and the 17-year-old allegedly smacked him in the back with his shovel, police said.

The two brothers fled but were arrested a short time later.

Wili Almonte is charged with second-degree assault and conspiracy. His brother, not identified because of his age, faces the same charges.

The 42-year-old father, whom police did not identify, was treated at Stamford Hospital for cuts to his head.
