Son Charged In Mother’s Stabbing

By City News Service

A 25-year-old man suspected of stabbing his mother in their Boyle Heights home, leaving her hospitalized, was charged Monday with attempted murder.

Angel Hernandez was arrested Thursday in El Sereno by a detective who had interviewed the victim at the hospital. The lead detective on the case was on his way back to the station after the interview when he spotted Hernandez walking in the area and called for back-up, police said.

Hernandez, who is also facing a gun allegation, appeared in a downtown courtroom this afternoon but did not enter a plea. His arraignment was postponed to March 14, according to a court clerk.
Police said the stabbing occurred about 12:10 a.m. last Monday in the 3700 block of Lee Street, where the victim lived with her son.

“The mother was upset with her son for an incident that occurred earlier in the day,’” according to a statement issued by the Los Angeles Police Department. “Hernandez’s sister heard the mother pleading with her son that what he was doing wasn’t necessary and to just leave. Hernandez’s sister then heard what sounded like Hernandez physically assaulting their mother. Looking through a kitchen window, she saw her brother retrieve a large kitchen knife.”

When officers arrived at the home, they found the mother with multiple stab wounds to her neck, arms and legs, but her son had fled the scene, police said.

The woman was expected to survive her wounds.

Hernandez was being held in lieu of $1 million bail.
