3-year-old dies in Adelaide, following stabbing

A 3 year old boy in Adelaide has allegedly been stabbed to death and police have detained his father.

Police were attending a separate incident in Adelaide’s north-eastern suburbs, when they were approached by a man who told them he had injured his son.

The boy was rushed to Adelaide Women’s and Children’s hospital but died from the injuries he had sustained.

The boy’s father has been taken to Royal Adelaide Hospital, to be treated for minor injuries.

Police say the boy’s mother had contacted authorities this morning, saying her son had been taken by his father, from the family home and she had concerns for his safety.

Police are urging anyone with information to come forward.
