Kiddie pool argument leads uncle to stab niece with screw driver

WICHITA, Kansas – A woman is stabbed with a screw driver by her uncle after an argument over a kiddie pool.

It happened in the 200 block of North Ash around 9:30 Saturday night. That’s where the 25 year old victim set up a small child’s pool in her yard.

Her uncle, who lives next door, believed the pool was too close to his property. That’s when the 49 year old man got very upset and stabbed his niece in the ankle with a screwdriver.

Wichita Police say the man suffers from severe mental disabilities.

He was taken to Via Christie Hospital on Harry for mental services. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
