10-Year-Old Boy Stabbed

On Monday evening, Aug. 12, at approximately 7:21, an off-duty Fairbury Police Department officer reported a disturbance that was taking place in the vicinity of 9th and H Streets in Fairbury.

The police also responded to that location and an ambulance was then dispatched to 9th and E St. when a second report was called in stating that a 10-year-old boy had been stabbed.

The police responded to that location and it was determined that the two reported calls were related to one another. It was determined the boy had sustained an injury to his abdomen and it was reported to police that it was by accident.

The boy was transported to a hospital for his injury.

No arrests have been made and the case is still under investigation.

The juvenile was transported to a Lincoln Hospital with undisclosed injuries.
