Multiple people attacked by man armed with knife
MOBILE, Ala. (WPMI) —
A child was almost stomped to death and the mother now in a coma after a horrific attack in a west Mobile neighborhood Wednesday afternoon.
This morning we've learned that a man his been booked in connection with the violence.
While police have yet to identify the man arrested, we checked the Mobile Metro Jail log overnight.
23-year-old Tyrone Owen, who lives at the address on Wynnridge Drive , was arrested and booked last night charged with assault, domestic violence, burglary and robbery.
Police say late yesterday morning, a call came in for an attempted suicide at this home in the neighborhood of Wynnridge Drive, but then law enforcement discovered multiple victims.
A 56-year-old man was the stabbing suspects father and suffered lacerations and stab wounds to his back.
The 35-year-old woman who is a neighbor did not fare so well.
Her brother-in-law tells NBC 15 news the attacker ran up to the house and asked for cash and food.
He then bolted into her house and began attacking her two-year-old son stomping and kicking him.
The violence turned to the mother when she tried to defend her son.
The family says that 2-year-old little boy has asthma, but will be fine. The mom is in critical condition.
We also know the suspect sustained injuries - although at this time we are not exactly sure how.
