DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) — A 15-year-old boy said his mother cut him with a knife when she became angry over food.
The boys mother was arrested on charges of felonious assault.
Police were called to Good Samaritan Hospital Saturday after 8 p.m. where they met with the 15-year-old victim and his aunt.
The victim told police he called his aunt after his mother had stabbed him for eating food. His aunt then took him to the hospital.
The aunt told police the mother was angry because she is on food stamps and has a fixed income. She said the mother cooked four pork chops the night before, but when she woke up Saturday three were gone and her son lied about eating them. The aunt said the mother then began to throw knives at the victim. The aunt said the mother was drunk.
Police noted the victim suffered a cut to his hand.
Police caught up with the boys mother at her home on Neal Avenue. She told officers her son knocked her to the ground, which started the incident. Police said being knocked to the ground didn’t justify throwing a deadly weapon; officers said the mother agreed.
Officers said they found various knives on the kitchen counter and in the sink including a meat cleaver. They also found bloody towels.
Children Services was contacted.
The mother is set to appear in court Monday.
