SARASOTA - A quiet upscale Sarasota County neighborhood was the scene Sunday morning of what appears to have been a brutal assault with a knife.


A 23 year old woman and a 25 year old man were attacked by a 16 year old boy. It appears they are all siblings. According to family members, the woman suffered cuts to her abdomen, diaphragm, leg and face, as well as a collapsed lung. The man was stabbed in the back of his head.



The 16-year-old boy was taken into custody by the Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office and appeared to be under the influence of drugs at the time of his arrest.

This is a developing story.
