JACKSON (AP) — Police say two teens have been detained after a stolen SUV was recovered following the stabbing of a 61-year-old woman who was last reported in critical condition.

Jackson police tweeted Wednesday morning that the 18 and 13-year-olds were questioned and a “possible” third suspect had fled after the incident. Police say the 13-year-old boy is charged with aggravated assault, auto theft and armed robbery. Local news outlets report he was charged as an adult in the Tuesday night incident.

Police say the 2016 orange Toyota RAV4 was found Wednesday morning. The woman has not been identified.

Police Cmdr. Tyree Jones says there is not much to make of it other than there are some cowards out lurking and looking to commit criminal acts against individuals in the community.
