ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV.com) - A 12-year-old boy and his 8-year-old nephew were arguing over television and video games when the older boy stabbed the younger boy early Wednesday morning, police said.

While the two were arguing, the older boy went into the kitchen, got a steak knife and allegedly stabbed the victim in the thigh.

Police were called to the scene in the 5000 block of Minerva near Kingshighway Blvd.

After officers arrived, the 12-year-old exited the residence, reportedly brandishing the knife and shouting profanities at officers while running around the front yard.

Authorities were able to restrain the boy and remove the knife from his possession without any further incident.

Both of the boys were transported to a hospital, where the stabbed child was listed as stable. Social Services also responded to the hospital.

The child accused of the stabbing was released to his guardian.
