STORM LAKE, Iowa (AP) - A Storm Lake mother and her 10-year-old son have been charged following the stabbing of the boy’s 9-year-old brother.

Authorities say they responded to a call Monday that a mother was looking for a ride to the hospital because her son had been stabbed. They say her 10-year-old son had been arguing with his younger brother when he threw a knife at the 9-year-old, stabbing him in the back.

Police say the 10-year-old was charged Monday with aggravated assault with a weapon. He was later released to a family member. The mother was arrested on a child endangerment charge and is being held on $2,000 bond.

The Associated Press doesn’t usually name juveniles charged with crimes.

The Sioux City Journal reports the 9-year-old was treated and released to family members.
