Investigation into Stabbing at 12000 Martin Luther King Boulevard

Houston police are investigating the stabbing of a juvenile female that occurred at 12000 Martin Luther King Boulevard about 6 p.m. on Monday (March 30).

The victim, 11, was transported to an area hospital with non life-threatening lacerations.

HPD Major Assaults & Family Violence Division Officer S. Laird reported:

The victim had a fight with a 14-year old female on Sunday (March 29) and, on Monday, the victim sent messages to the older female, taunting her to have a rematch fight. 

The victim and a 13-year old friend then went to the 14-year old's apartment and told her to come out.  When the 14-year-old's mother answered the door, her 14-year-old and 11-year-old daughters ran outside and began fighting the victim and her friend.  The mother stated she tried to break up the fight. 

There were conflicting statements provided about the incident.  The victim and her friend stated the mother stabbed the victim.  The other group claimed the victim's friend stabbed her.

The victim was transported to the hospital with cuts to the back of her neck and a stab wound to her right arm.  The mother was questioned by detectives and released pending further investigation.

Anyone with information in this case is urged to contact the HPD Major Assaults & Family Violence Division at 713-308-8800 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
