Younger twin stabs older sister after argument

CHIBA —
Police on Sunday arrested a 15-year-old girl for stabbing her older twin sister at their apartment in Chiba. According to police, the girls’ father called for help late Sunday morning. An emergency crew arrived to find one sibling stabbed in the chest. She was rushed to the hospital and is in a stable condition.

Police arrested her younger twin sister for attempted murder after she admitted to stabbing her older sibling. Later the same day, the younger sister was released and a child consultation center was requested to look into the matter.

According to police, the girls’ parents were out of the house at the time, and the father called the police after getting a call from the daughter who was stabbed. The younger twin has a slight mental disability, police said.
