Vergie Dean, 41, of 425 W. Bancroft St., was stabbed early Friday morning after coming home around 1:00 a.m. Police say her son, Aaron Dean, 18, was upset with his mother for not bringing him home a cheeseburger, along with the fast food she brought home for herself.
The teen attacked his mother, stabbing her in the right arm with a large butcher knife. In the altercation, Vergie stabbed her son in the hand with another knife, according to authorities.
Aaron Dean fled the scene and was taken into custody a short time later on Prescott St. He was arrested on charges of felonious assault, drug abuse, and giving false information. Both mother and son were treated at Mercy St. Vincent Medical Center for non-life threatening wounds.
