Dallas police are investigating the stabbing of a 15-year-old boy who they say was attacked by classmates with a screwdriver in a park on Tuesday afternoon..
Police said the attack occurred about 12:30 p.m. on Tuesday at West Haven Park off of Wisteria Street in West Oak Cliff. The victim, Manuel Sendejas, and four attackers all attend T.W. Brown Middle School.
Sendejas was on his way home from summer school. Instead of taking the bus, the 8th grader walked home with some classmates. Police said the group got into an argument and the boy was stabbed in the head, chin, back and chest. A family member of Sendejas told FOX4 the teen was stabbed 20-23 times, including wounds near is heart and stomach.
"This was no playful game," said the victim's mother Lori Alfaro. "I don't feel no sympathy for their parents cause if their parents cared anything about their kids, they would have more supervision on their kids 'cause little boys just don't go around tryin' to kill people," she said.
The teen was taken in critical condition to Methodist Hospital with multiple stab wounds. A screwdriver is believed to be one of the weapons involved.
Police were able to recover blood stained clothes from the home of one of the teen suspects.
Three of the four attackers were arrested Tuesday and the fourth was brought to police by family members on Wednesday.
