Police on Sunday arrested a man they believe stabbed a 5-year old boy in his back as the child walked through West Farms with his mother, authorities said.

Jesus Felix, 26, was taken into custody after a member of his family tipped off the NYPD, officials said. The charges pending against him include assault and weapon possession.

Felix apparently randomly targeted the child and stabbed him on Daly Avenue about 1:20 a.m. Sunday, authorities said.

The boy’s wounds are not life threatening.
