An Oregon girl is facing charges after police say she tried to kill her father.
Sun Journal reports that the incident happened Wednesday at a home off of Winter Street in Auburn. At around 10 a.m., authorities arrived at the residence and found a 12-year-old girl with cut marks on her hands and her father with stab wounds to his chest and abdomen.
“The preliminary investigation indicates that the 12-year-old female was responsible for the attack on her father,” Deputy Police Chief Tim Cougle stated in a news release. “Both subjects were treated on scene by the Auburn Fire Department and transported to a local hospital. The male victim is in serious but stable condition.”
Due to the suspect’s age, her name has not been released. Police have not mentioned a motive yet.
A neighbor told the outlet that he didn’t know the victim’s name, but never noticed anything unusual about the family.
The suspect was taken to the Long Creek Youth Development Center in South Portland. The victim is expected to survive.
