A stabbing attack of two children in the bedroom of their Camden home has left a six-year-old boy dead and his sister critically injured.

Sleeping six-year-old Dominick Andujor was stabbed to death at about 2:20 a.m. Sunday morning.

According to 6abc.com, Dominick’s sister, a 12-year-old named Amber left the house after her throat was slashed and went banging on doors, looking for help. “I saw her sitting there with her throat cut open and barely breathing," said Nakyta McCray, living nearby, who called 911.

Philly.com reported that a 14-year-old girl had been babysitting Dominick, Amber, and 9-year old sister Amy because their mother was in Cooper Hospital recovering from recent surgery and Dominick's father lives out of state. The 9-year-old and 14-year-old were said to be unharmed.

Police were reportedly looking for a man from the neighborhood who has lacerations on his hand. According to NJ.com, they have arrested 31-year-old Osvaldo Rivera, who is being charged with murder and attempted murder.

Amber was said to be in critical condition at Cooper University Hospital. Sunday was Amber’s 12th birthday.
