A 13-year-old Baker City boy was arraigned today in Baker County Juvenile Court on a charge of second-degree assault, a Class B felony, for allegedly stabbing his father Monday night.

Police were dispatched to the family’s 10th Street home at 6:35 p.m., according to the Baker County Sheriff’s Office press log.

The boy’s father was not seriously injured and did not seek medical attention, District Attorney Matt Shirtcliff said.

The Major Crime Team was activated Monday to continue the investigation, Shirtcliff said. The team includes officers from Baker City Police, Oregon State Police and the Baker County Sheriff’s Office.

Authorities transported the boy to The Dalles where he is being held in the juvenile section of the Northern Oregon Regional Corrections Facility (NORCOR).
