POLICE have arrested a 41-year-old woman in Elche who stabbed her 19-year-old son after she had been on a drunken night out. The incident happened last week when she arrived home, where her three children were, and an argument ensued about her state of intoxication. At some stage the woman fetched a kitchen knife and her son was stabbed in the side of his chest; fortunately the knife avoided vital organs or the result could have been much worse.
After receiving treatment the son gave the National Police a statement and his mother was arrested. One of the children is a minor, and as he was also present when the incident occurred this may make the matter more serious for the accused, who has initially been referred for a psychiatric report.
