9-year-old stabbed multiple times while trying to save mother
NEW ORLEANS - A 9-year-old girl was stabbed multiple times while trying to protect her mother from a man who broke into their home.
WWL reported that 33-year-old Kimbreyelle Lucas was attacked around 6 a.m. Thursday, and her 9-year-old daughter had multiple stab wounds. Lucas died in the hospital.
A family member told WWL that the attacker was likely a friend's jealous boyfriend who sneaked into a back window and "confronted Lucas about looking for men with his girlfriend."
The family member said the man stabbed Lucas, the girl stabbed him, and then he stabbed the 9-year-old back before leaving the home.
WWL reported the child has a dozen surgeries to go, but police have the alleged attacker, 35-year-old Steven Grant, in custody.
The family member told WWL the police said Grant was on probation for shooting his girlfriend three years ago.
