HARRIS COUNTY, Texas – A 71-year-old woman, who authorities say was diagnosed with dementia, was stabbed by her son at an apartment complex in north Harris County, deputies with the sheriff’s office said.
It happened at the Cypress Parc apartments located in the 18000 block of Cypress Trace Road.
HCSO Lt. Paul Bruce says deputies received a call around 10:19 Monday morning for a stabbing. Bruce said, “upon arrival, they found a female stabbed multiple times.”
The woman was taken to Houston Healthcare Northwest in critical condition with life-threatening injuries.
It is unclear what led up to the altercation, but Bruce says the suspect, in his late 30s, suffers from mental health issues.
