An 11-year old Pembroke boy was arrested and taken to Cumberland Hall Saturday night for a Friday incident when he allegedly assaulted his sister.
Hopkinsville Police investigated an assault at 209 East 9th that reportedly happened between 5 and 6:30 Friday night. Police were not called until around 10:40 Saturday morning, when a 17-year old female told officers that her 11-year old brother had stabbed her in the left bicep with a broken mop handle during an argument.
The female had a piece of wood removed from her arm at Jennie Stuart Medical Center and it took two sutures to close the wound. The boy, whose address is listed as Pembroke, was charged with 2nd degree assault.
