1 Year Old Stabbed In East St. Louis
EAST ST. LOUIS, Ill. (AP) – Police say a 1-year-old girl, the
child’s father and another man were stabbed in East St. Louis after
an altercation between a brother and sister. The Belleville News-Democrat reports the stabbings happened Thursday afternoon. An investigator says a juvenile who is the sister of the baby’s 20-year-old father is being held at the St. Clair County Juvenile
Detention Center in connection with the matter. Authorities say she slashed the father’s throat with a box cutter, cutting the baby’s hand and a wrist as the child’s father
was holding her. A neighbor who tried to break up the fight also suffered a cut on his right arm. There’s no immediate word on charges.
