YORK, S.C. -- An 11-year-old child in York has been charged with attempted murder after police say he stabbed a teenager.
It happened around 6:30 p.m. Monday near Highway 321 Bypass and Green Street in York County.
The York Police Department says an adult broke up a fight between the 11-year-old and 15-year-old males. The younger child broke free from the adult who pulled him away, ran back and stabbed the 15 year old in the back, police say.
Paramedics took the victim to CMC, where he’s being treated for potentially life-threatening injuries.
The Department of Juvenile Justice took the suspect into custody. The case is likely to be heard in York County Family Court.
