Boy, 5, uses knife to injure babysitter

A 5-year-old boy who used a knife to cause a minor injury to his 27-year-old babysitter was placed in the custody of Children’s Protective Services (CPS) early Friday evening, according to Hood County Sheriff’s Office Lieutenant Johnny Rose.

According to emergency scanner traffic shortly after 6 p.m., the boy had threatened “to kill everyone there,” and the babysitter managed to lock the boy out of the residence on Quail Ridge Court in the Quail Ridge Acres subdivision northeast of Granbury after being unable to take the knife away from him. Deputies quickly arrived, took the knife away and there were no other injuries.
