A 6-year-old child is dead and another juvenile is injured after a 24-year-old woman stabbed them both in Dallas Thursday, police say.

Troyshaye Mone Hall, 24, faces a capital murder and aggravated assault charge for the stabbing, police said Friday, but investigators did not reveal any motive for the alleged attack.

Officers were called to a stabbing at a residence on the 2900 block of Frazier Street, southeast of Fair Park, shortly before 2 p.m. When officers arrived, a witness told them an adult woman, Hall, had stabbed both of the children.

A woman who lived at the residence said she ran to a neighbor, a member of law enforcement, to get help detaining Hall and they were physically able to restrain her.

“He was off duty. [They said] he had tackled the young lady. He had detained her, and then he put the baby, the 6-year-old in the car,” said community activist Lamont Levels.

Levels lives nearby and said he was one of several neighbors to call 911.

From the fire station, Dallas Fire-Rescue paramedics transferred the girl to a hospital, where she died, police said.

The juvenile boy, whose age has not been released, was also hospitalized and is said to be in stable condition.
