A Texas mom wants you to know her sons are very sorry for stabbing a woman and sending her to the hospital in critical condition. Because, you know, everyone makes “mistakes.”

It all started when two children, brothers ages 7 and 12, were seen on camera riding their bikes and stopping on the driveway of a Harris County house. According to local reports that cited neighbors, the 56-year-old woman who lives there had a known history of mental health problems and would often yell random and even aggressive things at passersby.

But while most people’s response to such a thing would be to just keep walking, the boys, who live in the neighborhood, can be seen pausing at the home for a few moments before riding away. They then return a few moments later, with the older child holding something in his hand. He parks his bike, runs into the open garage where the woman was standing, and proceeds to stab her multiple times in the abdomen. The pair then get back on their bikes and flee the scene.

Fortunately for the victim, her brother showed up a few minutes later to find his sister bleeding out on the garage floor. Police responded within about 10 minutes. The woman was taken to the hospital in critical condition, but has reportedly stabilized after emergency surgery.

A short while later, the 12-year-old boy was arrested and charged with aggravated assault. The 7-year-old, on the other hand, was not charged, as the minimum age for criminal charges in Texas is 10.

But their mom wants everyone to know her kids are very sorry for intentionally walking up to a woman and stabbing her in the gut multiple times. After all, it was just a “mistake,” and we all make them.

"He's just a boy. We learn from mistakes,” she told local reporters, claiming that her son, too, has "mental problems."

Well, there you have it, y'all. Just blame mental health issues for your "mistake," and it's OK to stab someone in the stomach and nearly kill them. Nothing to see here.
