A boy was taken to the hospital Sunday after being stabbed in the stomach by his 4-year-old brother.

Police Chief Jody Lenahan said the 10- or 12-year-old boy was trying to take a knife away from the 4-year-old when he was stabbed.

The boy was taken to the hospital and released, Lenahan said.

The incident happened Sunday afternoon in the Meadow Village Trailer Park home of a Hayden police officer. The boys were the officer's nephews, Lenahan said.

Because of the connection to the Hayden Police Department, the case has been handed over to the Routt County Sheriff's Office for investigation, he said.
