SOUTH BEND -

This morning neighbors on South Bend's Liston Street woke up to news of a stabbing at the end of their street. Police say a 13 year old boy attacked his older brother in the neck...with a screwdriver.

Trayshawn Jones says he knew the family well and was good friends with the two brothers. They played basketball and went fishing together. He says they acted like typical siblings.

"Nothing this crazy. I expect them to get in fist fights, but not stabbing," Jones said.

Brenda Bradley, another neighbor, says she would sometimes scold the kids for messing around on the sidewalk. She is worried that today's stabbing is an example of children becoming more violent.

"These children next door are very nice children they just don't seem to be able to follow the rules of their parents. And they have a very good parent. They have a very nice home. I mean it's not like they're out in the street. They have someplace to go and you notice that it's happening everywhere. Nobody knows why, but a lot of it has to do with the violence we see on tv," Bradley said.

The Indiana Department of Correction says St. Joe County has the second largest number of incarcerated juveniles in the state.

Bradley says she has known the boys since they first moved in about six or seven years ago. She says it's sad to see them get caught up in violence.

"I saw them yesterday playing basketball. They seemed to be having fun. I mean they're kids and I hope that everybody gets through this. I hope they're okay," Bradley said.

Police say the fifteen year old suffered non-life threatening injuries while the younger brother faces a preliminary charge of battery.

    Make a statement with the Summer 2014 hair and makeup trends

    Makeup at the Summer 2014 fashion shows wasn't what you'd normally expect. Usually models sport bold eye-shadows, thick black eyeliner, and bronzed sun-kissed skin. This year... makeup and hair made a statement on the runway with what they're calling the "Raw Beauty" look. The summer look is a subtle one - milky golds, ivories, and pale hues for eye shadows. It's almost that look of not even looking like you have makeup on. When it comes to hair, the look is called "effortless elegance", whe...More >>
