St. Louis Police say a man was attacked after a dispute with his nephew over an arguably trivial issue.

Officials say they were called to a home just after 5am Saturday. A 50-year-old man told detectives his nephew was upset with him because of a dispute over the Netflix password. The man said his nephew tried to steal the password while he slept.

During the argument, the nephew grabbed a kitchen knife and sliced the nose of the 50-year-old before running away.
