Yes, try to reach HEAL. Otherwise, it's worth clarifying WHY you want to intervene. Is the old man at risk from his other son, such that your fiancee needs to know, to help protect his Dad ? Could you make excuses to take youtr fiancee to visit his dad moe often, so he could have a better chance of finding out by talking with his Dad ?
I'm also puzled about how you came to know, if it's such a secret --- who would have told you and not your fiancee, and why ? I'm not complaining that you know, but am wondering what they were wanting to achieve ? Were they "swearing you to secrecy" in the hope that you would NOT keep the secret but pass it on to your fiance ?
If this was a one-off argument, has never happened before and is highly unlikely to happen again, there's more reason to consider waiting to see what happens. If the older man is still at risk of further assault, the need to tell someone able to intervene usefully, is higher and more urgent. Why doesn't the father complain to the police, for instance ?
