A 7-year-old boy was allegedly stabbed by his adult brother in Whitter

A man allegedly stabbed his 7-year-old brother multiple times in Whittier, leaving the boy in critical condition, authorities said Friday.

Officers responded to a report of domestic violence at a home in the 9600 block of Ben Hur Avenue just after 10 p.m. Thursday, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department’s Norwalk Station. They found the boy seriously injured from multiple stab wounds and he was rushed to a nearby hospital. He is expected to survive, authorities said.

Meanwhile, the 24-year-old suspect had fled the house when emergency services arrived. They set up a barricade and found him a block away, authorities said. He was bleeding when they found him, although it is unclear what led to his injuries.

Authorities say he was taken into custody without incident.

Police said he was having a “mental episode” at the time of the stabbing.

No other injuries have been reported and no other details have been released as the investigation continues.
