OCALA, Fla. - A 9-year-old boy has been arrested and charged with attempted first-degree murder after he allegedly stabbed his 5-year-old sister multiple times.

Authorities in Ocala, Florida responded to an apartment complex Monday afternoon to reports of a stabbing involving juveniles, according to WFTV.

Once police arrived, they discovered a 5-year-old victim with multiple stab wounds inside the apartment where they lived but no sign of a suspect. The victim was conscious and able to speak with authorities when they found her.
