Ohio mom tells police she stabbed her two young children

An Ohio mother was arrested after she told police she stabbed her 7- and 8-year-old children on Thursday night, according to reports.

The mother — who has yet to be identified by local law enforcement — was taken into custody after she called Lucas County Sheriff’s Department from outside the Franklin Park Mall and told the dispatcher she had stabbed her children around 6:20 p.m., officials told WTOL.

Police responded to the home where they found the wounded children. One child was in serious condition, according to Lucas County Sheriff Mike Navarre.
