The Los Angeles boy, 9, stabbed at Target was released from the hospital in time for Christmas

A nine-year-old Los Angeles boy who was stabbed in a Target store by a homeless man last month was released from the hospital just before Christmas.

Brayden Medina was able to walk out of the hospital on his own Friday. He had been in the hospital since a homeless man with a butcher’s knife taken from the store’s kitchen section stabbed him in the back on November 15. The homeless man had also stabbed a 25-year-old woman.

The man grabbed the knife and threatened to kill the boy before stabbing him and the other woman, according to Los Angeles police. The boy tried to walk away before the man stabbed him.
