Chippewa Co. Deputies: 12-Year-Old Stabs Man Accused of Threatening Woman With Gun

A man is in trouble add recovering in the hospital after he was stabbed during an assault.

Deputies say he shot at a mother and child as they ran away from him.

Around midnight Chippewa County deputies were called to an assault at a home on Lake George Road on Sugar Island after a man fired a gun several times into the floor.

Fearing for his mother’s life, a 12-year-old boy stabbed the suspect four times in the back.

Deputies say the mother and child were able to escape using the back door as the suspect fired off even more rounds in their direction as they ran.

They were found by deputies.

The suspect was finally arrested after several hours and multiple attempts to talk him down.

He was then taken to the hospital for the stab wounds, but remains in Chippewa County Sheriff’s Office custody.

The investigation is ongoing.
