People in a quiet neighborhood in Mississippi, were shocked to learn of a violent crime that was carried out by a minor.

Police arrested a 13-year-old boy after a 61-year-old woman was left in critical condition and missing an ear.

The woman, whose name has not been released, was attacked around 10:30 p.m., at her home in Jackson.

The woman backed her Toyota RAV4 into her driveway, and walked to her house. As she opened her door, three juveniles ran up to her.

One boy began stabbing the victim in the neck and chest several times, before cutting off her ear.

The teens then stole the woman’s purse and car keys, and they drove away with her vehicle.

The woman was found lying in a pool of blood, police said.

She underwent two surgeries at the University of Mississippi Medical Center, and she is expected to undergo a third surgery due to the severity of her injuries.

Police arrested the three teens. Police have named the main suspect as 13-year-old Corey Smith. He was charged as an adult with aggravated assault, auto theft and armed robbery, police said.
