Juvenile arrested for hitting brother with pan, trying to stab him with fork


A 13-year-old boy was arrested Monday night after allegedly hitting his brother in the head with a pan.

Officers with the Jonesboro Police Department were dispatched to an apartment on North Patrick Street around 10:15 p.m. in reference to a family disturbance.

The unidentified boy’s mother told officers that she was not inside when her son threw the contents of a cooking pan all over the kitchen and knocked over lamps in the living room.

Her oldest son was in the house with the minor.

The 20-year-old told officers that his younger brother was outside playing with other kids and when he came inside he started yelling for an unknown reason.

According to the police report, the boy then grabbed a cooking pan off of the stove and hit his older brother in the head with it.

The older brother said he got the cooking pot away from the boy, but the minor then grabbed a fork and tried to stab him with it.

Officers were told the 13-year-old has bipolar disorder, ADHD and other psychiatric disorders.

The boy was taken to the Craighead County Juvenile Detention Center, where he was charged with assault on a family or household member.

He was left at the detention center awaiting a probable cause hearing.
