HARRIS COUNTY, Texas — A 16-year-old has was arrested Wednesday after deputies said he stabbed his grandmother multiple times with a knife.

The incident happened just after 8:30 a.m. in the 5800 block of Slashwood Lane.

Investigators said the teen is being charged with aggravated assault of an elderly person and is being taken to a juvenile probation facility.

The teen has a criminal history and was wearing an ankle monitor at the time of the attack, deputies said. It’s still unclear what offense resulted in him getting the ankle monitor.
