The stabbing happened before 8 a.m. along the 1200 block of Pratt Street.

Neighbors tell NBC10 that the teen was stabbed inside the home. He then stumbled across the street while attempting to make a phone call before he collapsed.

The 16-year-old was taken to the hospital in serious condition suffering from stab wounds to his arm, ribs and ear, according to Philadelphia Police.

Cops arrested the boy's mother for allegedly attacking her son.
