A man is accused of stabbing and wounding a toddler in an Arden-Arcade apartment Friday morning.
The 2-year-old child was stabbed multiple times with a kitchen knife, Sacramento County Sheriff's Sgt. Lisa Bowman said. The boy was taken to the hospital for treatment and is listed in fair condition. Bowman said the child is expected to survive.
Deputies arrested Johnroy Aguilar, 26, after 7 a.m. at the apartment in the 1800 block of Morse Avenue, Bowman said. The child and mother had locked themselves in a back room of the apartment after the attack then called the sheriff's office. When deputies arrived at the scene, they forced their way inside the apartment and apprehended Aguilar.
Aguilar's mother, who did not want her name reported, said she and her son lived in the Brockford Place apartment, which they shared with the little boy and the boy's mother.
