A man with mental disabilities stabbed his niece Saturday evening over placement of her kiddie pool, Wichita police said.

It happened around 9:30 p.m. in the 200 block of North Ash Street.

The 25-year-old woman and her 49-year-old uncle are neighbors. Sgt. Bart Brunscheen said the uncle became upset after his niece put a small plastic pool too close to his home. Then he reportedly stabbed her in the ankle with a small screwdriver.

He suffers "severe mental disabilities," Brunscheen said.

The woman was not seriously hurt and refused transport to the hospital. Her uncle was taken to Via Christi St. Joseph Hospital for mental services, Brunscheen said.
