- — Teen stabbed older brother, police say

SHARON – A teenage boy faces charges after he stabbed his older brother following an argument, police said.

The incident began with an argument at about 4:30 p.m. Sunday. It involved a video game at the home in the 1000 block of Sherman Avenue where the 14-year-old lives with the brothers’ parents.

After throwing a controller and running, the boy grabbed a steak knife in the kitchen and stabbed his 27-year-old brother in the bicep of his arm, police said.

He was taken to a juvenile detention center and the victim was treated at the hospital of Sharon Regional Health System, police said.

Woman charged in stabbing of boyfriend

SHARON – A  woman is accused of stabbing her boyfriend after an argument during a domestic incident at their home at about 6 a.m. Monday at 726 Cedar Ave.

Faith Yvette Teague, 40, briefly left the house during the argument and used a large serrated kitchen knife to puncture two tires on Devon Campbell’s vehicle.

After a scuffle when she returned to the living room she stabbed him, Teague told police, because he had grabbed and was choking her.
