September 20, 2018

BREMEN, Ga. (AP) — Georgia police say a teenager argued with his mother and then stabbed her 11 times, leaving her in critical condition.

Bremen Police Chief Keith Pesnell tells WAGA-TV the 17-year-old was arrested on charges of aggravated assault and child cruelty. Pesnell says the boy attacked Tammy Lee Watson early Wednesday following an hours-long argument the night before.

Pesnell says the boy stabbed Watson with a kitchen knife “all over her body, more toward the neck.” Watson was taken to a hospital in critical condition. Her current condition is unknown. It’s unclear how authorities were alerted to the attack. Pesnell says two other children, ages 10 and 12, were at the home during the attack.
