An eight year old boy is officially charged with a stabbing in Grand Rapids.

The boy is currently in juvenile detention. He's accused of stabbing a 12-year-old boy in the upper body at a home on Caulfield Avenue, South of Franklin Street South West, that's in South Grand Rapids.

Police say it happened during an argument with other children. Eventually, an adult got the knife away from the boy.

The boy is due back in court next month.
