Child accused of stabbing 3 people

GREENE COUNTY, VA (WWBT) - Three people were hospitalized after they were stabbed by a child. Neighbors say the altercation was sparked by a fight over a juice box.

Investigators won't say the age of the child, but neighbors say the suspect is a 5-year-old. Police will only say that a juvenile used an "edged weapon" to stab two other children and an adult at a home in a Charlottesville mobile home park.

Sheriff Steve Smith says all three victims are suffered non-life threatening injuries. The Sheriff's office says the child will now be evaluated. Neighbors also say the child has caused trouble before.
