AN eleven-year-old boy was knifed in the abdomen by a man who broke into the family’s home in Valencia in the dark hours of Tuesday morning. Police said the pupil of the Valencia South Primary School heard a noise at 4a.m. He went outside and observed the front door open. When he walked towards the door to lock it, he found a man dressed in dark clothing with a bandana over his face, standing outside. The man stabbed the boy and ran. The boy was taken to the Sangre Grande District Hospital and is now being treated at the Mt Hope Hospital. WPC Yorke is investigating the case.
