DEERFIELD TWP., Ohio (FOX19) - A Warren County grand jury indicted a woman in connection with the stabbing of a 3-year-old boy.

Xiaoyan Zhu was indicted Monday for attempted aggravated murder and two counts of felonious assault, according to the records.

Zhu used a ceramic knife to stab the boy as he walked with his older sibling to a bus stop in the Charleston Park subdivision in Deerfield Township on March 4, court documents read.

The child was stabbed three times in his neck and back area, according to court records.

The knife broke during one of the stabs, which lodged the tip of it inside the 3-year-old, documents show.

The boy was transported to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, Warren County deputies said.

Records have not indicated what prompted Zhu to allegedly leave her Charleston Park Drive home that morning and stab the child.
