BOSTON (AP) — Boston police say three young people have been stabbed in what they are calling a domestic incident in the Hyde Park neighborhood.
Witnesses told reporters in the neighborhood the victims are two boys, one appearing to be about 6 years old and the other a preteen, and a girl who appeared to be teenage.
They said the children, bleeding from arm wounds, first ran down the street to a woman on a porch, and then to a corner store. The older boy was screaming that a man was trying to kill him. The adults called 911.
Officer Stephen McNulty said the victims’ injuries are non-life-threatening, but one is more seriously hurt than the others. They are being treated at a hospital.
McNulty said an adult suspect is in custody. The attack was reported just before 1 p.m. Saturday.
