Brevard police are investigating after a six-year-old child was stabbed Monday night, according to Chief Phil Harris.

Harris said officers were called to the Mountain Glen Apartments just after 11 p.m. from a mother who stated that her 17-year-old son had stabbed her six-year-old son.

Harris said the teen fled before officers arrived but they did locate the young boy with a stab wound to his neck.

The boy transported to the Transylvania Regional Hospital. Harris said the boy needed stitches but the injury was not life threatening. He was released from the hospital on Tuesday.

Officers found the teen elsewhere in the apartment complex and took him into custody.

The teen, who has not been identified due to his age, is charged with assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious bodily harm. He is currently being held on a $40,000 bond.
