LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) - A 14-year-old boy has been arrested after he allegedly stabbed a man who was apparently in a fight with his mother.
Lafayette Police say the 39-year-old victim was in "a disturbance" with a woman at about 8 a.m. Monday when the teenager intervened. During the altercation, police say the juvenile stabbed the man in the chest with a kitchen knife.
The man was transported to an area hospital, where he's listed in critical condition. His name has not been released.
The juvenile was booked on a charge of attempted second-degree murder. His name was not released because of his age. It was not immediately known if the teenager has legal representation.
