Boy cut by knife while trying to stop parents' fight

SAN DIEGO - A young boy was cut by a knife Tuesday evening while trying to stop a fight between his mother and father.

The incident occurred just before 10 p.m. on Gribble Street near Meadowbrook Drive in the Jamacha-Lomita area. Officers arrived on scene after receiving a 911 call from a child reporting that his mother was stabbing him.

Police say it was the result of a domestic disturbance between a woman and her husband. She began throwing the husband's belongings into the front yard and cutting them up with a knife, according to police.

When their young son stepped in the middle to try and stop the fight, he was cut on the arm. The boy was treated by medics at the scene and was not seriously injured.

The mother suffered cuts to her hands when the family wrestled the knife from her. She was bandaged up and arrested before being taken to the hospital.
