Punxsutawney, PA – A Punxsutawney teen says that voices in his head commanded him to stab a woman.

The 15-year-old boy stabbed a 48-year-old Punxsutawney woman in the shoulder with a steak knife around 1:30 Tuesday afternoon, then struck her on the head several times.

The boy allegedly told police that he heard voices in his head that instructed him to kill her.

The woman was taken from the home in Oliver Township to Allegheny General Hospital and is in stable condition. The teen is being treated at Children’s Hospital and undergoing a mental health evaluation.

Because the boy is 15, he remains unnamed. He is being charged with attempted homicide, aggravated assault, and other related offenses.
