(Newser) – A young teen attacker stabbed a 13-year-old girl more than 30 times before raping her, then slashed her baby brother, police said yesterday The girl was sleeping at home with her 18-month-old sibling when the 14-year-old boy burst into their northern California home, according to the Vacaville Reporter. He stabbed the young teen with a kitchen knife, then raped her. When her little brother awoke, the attacker stabbed him 10 times, cops said. The two are in critical condition but are expected to live. The children were home alone; the girl was babysitting while their mother was out.

The girl showed "great courage" by calmly relaxing the attacker until he fell asleep, then escaping with her brother to a neighbor's home, said a detective. The still-sleeping rapist was busted by a SWAT team, according to cops. Detectives are seeking a motive for the extreme violence. "The suspect isn't talking to us," said a police spokesman. A neighbor of the suspect described him as "crazy ... there's something wrong with him." He has been charged with two counts of attempted homicide and multiple sex assaults, and has been in trouble with the law before.

My heart goes to the victims I hope they will be OK. I am a working mom and I often leave my two kids at home alone they are 12 and five years old but I am more confident in leaving them at home because I provided them with SafeKidZone mobile security application that has a panic button to press if emergency arises, and they can summon for help and ask for an immediate response to the nearest 911 in our area, and it will notify me, family members and trusted friends. This application is very helpful to my family check their site

I wonder if that boy has some weird medical condition, like a brain tumor. I hope they study the little monster well and figure it out.
