The boys will appear in court next week after Joseph Mahgagahbow was left seriousy injured in a knife attack
Two teenagers will appear in court in connection with a slash attack which left a young boy with serious injuries.
The boys, aged 12 and 14, have been charged with section 18 wounding - a serious assault charge - after Joseph Mahgagahbow suffered gaping cuts to his arm, wrist and chest.
The 13-year-old had been brutally attacked when a scrap in Thornaby turned into a nightmare for Joseph and his family.
The two boys have also been charged with possession of a knife, and will appear at Teesside Youth Court on Wednesday, November 13.
As reported, Joseph was assaulted in May, with his mother Jayne telling Teesside Live at the time: "The knife just cut through like butter.
"Joe was covered in blood, I looked and it was just like open, you could see all the fatty tissue.
"I was shocked, I was calm in front of Joe because I didn't want to panic him. I just took him straight to the hospital."
Joe, a pupil at Thornaby Academy, was taken to the University Hospital of North Tees , in Stockton, where he was treated and then able to return home later that day.
