A 36-year-old mother was arrested after a stabbing sent her two children to the hospital in North York on Saturday morning, police say. The woman has been charged with two counts of attempted murder, two counts of aggravated assault and two counts of assault. The children, a six-month-old girl and four-year-old boy, were rushed to a trauma centre but police have said they are now in stable condition. The stabbing took place in the area of Weston Road and Finch Avenue West, in the city’s northwest. Police said they were called to the area shortly after 10 a.m. ET. “Through a preliminary investigation, we do believe the stabbing occurred indoors,” Toronto police spokesperson Alex Li told CBC News.
