BOONE COUNTY, KY (FOX19) -

An 11-year-old possibly saved his mother's life after calling 911 to tell officials an intruder had broken into their home. 

Renea Vasquez, 19, is being held at the Boone County Detention Center, accused of breaking into his ex-wife's house in Union, Ky, and stabbing her, according to officials.

On Wednesday, Boone County Sheriff's deputies responded to the 10000 block of U.S. 42 in Union, Ky, after they received a phone call from the victim's 11-year-old son.

“She’s bleeding a lot,” the boy can be heard telling 911 dispatchers.

The mother does not speak English, so dispatchers communicated with the boy who speaks both Spanish and English. 

“I was sleeping, I don’t know what happened. She said somebody tried coming in the house,” he said.

According to deputies, the victim reported that her ex-husband broke into her bedroom window.

Once inside, he allegedly choked her until she became limp. Deputies say as he loosened his grip allowing her to turn and face him, he allegedly pulled a knife and stabbed her in the right shoulder. 

After the incident, deputies obtained an arrest warrant and served it at his Carrollton residence. 

Vasquez faces burglary and assault charges. He is being held on a $250,000 bond.
