MURRIETA – A 16-year-old boy repeatedly stabbed his little brother in Murrieta, and has been arrested for attempted murder, a sergeant said today.
The victim, age 15, had several stab wounds and was taken to a hospital with serious, but non-life threatening injuries, Murrieta police Sgt. Matt Henry said.
The teen-age stabbing suspect was booked at a juvenile hall for suspicion of attempted murder, Henry said.
No names were released for the victim or the alleged attacker, but police said they are Murrieta residents. And officers had no motive to report.
The attack was reported at 3:05 p.m. Saturday at the Rancho Las Brisas apartments, 40125 Los Alamos Rd. News about the stabbing wasn’t made public until today.
