    Authorities in Greene County, Va. are evaluating a 5-year-old after the child allegedly stabbed three people.

    It happened Monday afternoon in a mobile home park in Ruckersville, a town about 30 miles south of Culpeper, Va.

    Sheriff Steve Smith said the child stabbed two children and an adult with a sharp-edged object. All of the victims were taken to a nearby hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

    Neighbors tell WTVR in Charlottesville the child was upset after a dispute over a juice box, but authorities did not confirm that report.
