INDIAN RIVER COUNTY, Fla. (WPBF/CNN) - A 12-year-old boy is in the hospital after he was stabbed in the head at his Florida home.
Deputies say a man believed to be the boy's stepfather has been taken into police custody. The boy's mother and 15-year-old sister were also injured in the incident Friday morning.
One neighbor says she witnessed part of what happened.
"He just went out and then he came in and he yelled, 'Mommy, Daddy, get up! Come and help Ms. Niecy. ' You know, and when we ran outside, I don't know what happened before we got there but she had already gotten away from him and he was charging at her again. And that's when my husband went up and grabbed him and said, 'No, get back. Just get in your car. You're not going to do anything else to her.' Looked over and her son was bleeding. There was blood everywhere. I didn't know where he had gotten hurt at, at the time," she said.
The mother and the boy's sister were treated and released from the hospital. The condition of the boy is known.
