A teen accused of stabbing his grandma and 5-year-old sister is being held in the juvenile jail after a judge decided to hold him. 

Police say 16-year-old Devon Bentacu attacked his family last month, then called police to report it. 

Officers say he took off, then broke into a woman’s home just blocks away. 

APD found Bentacu armed with a knife.
