Officers arrived and found the teen stabbed in the back of the neck with a screwdriver.

Medics immediately transported him to a local hospital, where he is in stable, non-life threatening condition.

Officers and investigators quickly located the suspect, the victim’s 13-year-old brother.

The suspect was taken into custody and, after questioning, has been placed under arrest and taken to the Juvenile Justice Center under a preliminary charge of battery.
