Mallorca boy, eight, stabs 12-year-old friend during argument
thinkSPAIN , Sunday, March 13, 2016

AN EIGHT-YEAR-OLD boy stabbed a friend in a house in Mallorca this afternoon (Sunday) leaving him in hospital with a perforated lung.

Guardia Civil officers are investigating the circumstances after hearing that the young aggressor, a Spanish gypsy, had knifed the 12-year-old Moroccan whilst in another person's house in the pictured village of Felanitx over an argument about a skateboard.

They say the younger boy grabbed a kitchen knife and aimed it directly at the older boy's chest, just below his collarbone.

Two ambulances rushed to the scene and the 12-year-old was taken straight to Palma de Mallorca's Son Espases hospital.

The fate of the younger boy is not yet known, since under Spanish law, children aged under 14 cannot be considered criminally liable.

Depending upon their home circumstances, their parents or guardians may be considered vicariously responsible, and the child may be ordered to attend re-education programmes and counselling.

A boy of 13 who killed a teacher with a crossbow at his school in Catalunya last year was due to attend psychiatric day-care classes and, in a separate incident in the Comunidad Valenciana, a 13-year-old who staged a one-girl crimewave and was caught red-handed burgling a property was taken to the police station, where officers were only able to call her parents to collect her.
