Two Texas boys, ages 12 and 16, are in police custody after they beat and stabbed their own mother in their home.
A San Antonio mother is in critical condition at the hospital after being found stabbed and beaten Wednesday morning in an apartment on the city’s far West Side. The incident happened at around 5 a.m. and the unidentified woman in her 40s managed to call 911 herself.
Police said she appeared to have been beaten with a baseball bat, even though the woman was not able to tell them much about the attack, she was able to identify her sons as the suspects.
The 16-year-old was still inside the apartment when police arrived, but the 12-year-old boy had fled the scene.
Officers located the 12-year-old nearby and both sons were taken into custody.
At this time police do not yet have a motive in the case.
The San Antonio Police Department said Wednesday afternoon that the investigation is ongoing.
