A Leavenworth teen was arrested after he allegedly stabbed his twin brother, a police spokesman said.

The incident was reported at 11:37 a.m. Wednesday in the 1200 block of Washington Street.

The 16-year-old suspect and his brother reportedly argued about who would move into a bedroom in their house. The suspect allegedly stabbed his brother in the stomach with a knife, according to Maj. Dan Nicodemus, deputy chief of the Leavenworth Police Department.

“The suspect left the residence,” Nicodemus said.

But the teen returned and was taken into custody. He was taken to the Leavenworth County Juvenile Detention Center for an allegation of aggravated battery.

The victim was taken to the hospital. His injuries are not considered life-threatening, Nicodemus said.
