A mother accused of stabbing her own son multiple times at their family home in Sydney’s eastern suburbs screamed “I love you” as she was escorted into the back of a police van.
Officers were called to a home on Drumalbyn Rd in Bellevue Hill just after 1.30am on Saturday where they found 22-year-old Hugo Ball suffering life-threatening injuries.
It is alleged he had been stabbed in his upper body.
He was treated at the scene before being rushed to St Vincent’s Hospital in a serious condition. His condition has since stabilised following surgery.
NSW Ambulance Inspector Giles Buchanan told 9News Mr Ball had extremely low blood pressure suggesting he had lost a lot of blood
“The location of the wounds can certainly be fatal,” he said.
His 55-year-old mother Samantha Palmer was arrested at the home and taken to Waverley Police Station where she spent 13 hours before she was charged with wounding a person with intent to cause grievous bodily harm (domestic violence).
She could be heard screaming “I love you” as authorities whisked her away into the back of a police van.
“I’m the mother of this child for God’s sake,” Mr Palmer could be heard saying.
She was refused bail and will front court on Sunday.
A knife was seized from the home.
