A 5-year-old boy was in police custody for allegedly stabbing three members of his family with an “edged object” over a juice box. On Monday, law enforcement officials responded to a call at a mobile home park in Green County, Virginia involving the child. None of the injuries are life threatening.
The boy reportedly has a temper and has been physically abusive of his mother.
While the child is in police custody, he’ll be evaluated. Greene County Sheriff Steve Smith told WAHU-TV, “I’ve heard of juveniles throwing temper tantrums, but I’ve never heard of anything like this before.”
