Sioux Falls Police say a 13-year-old boy was arrested after he allegedly stabbed two teens a number of times.

"We had a report of a stabbing. A 19-year-old had been stabbed several times in the back. After officers were investigating that incident there was another victim that had stab wounds to his hand. He was at the hospital," explained Public Information Officer Sam Clemens.

"Once all this was pieced together officers found out this was a drug rip where several people were planning on robbing another dealer of some meth. This boy ended up getting a knife and somehow was involved. He ended up stabbing the two victims."

Clemens says the 13-year-old boy was arrested on two counts of aggravated assault and is being held at the Juvenile Detention Center.

The two victims suffered non-life threatening injuries.
