(TRINIDAD EXPRESS) – AFTER a scolding from his mother about his school work, a 15-year-old Freeport schoolboy was arrested on Thursday after he allegedly chopped his mother with a cutlass.

The woman is in critical condition at hospital, being treated for multiple chop wounds to her head, chest and arms.

So severe were some of the wounds, police said, that one of the woman’s arms was almost severed.

Police were called around 7.30 a.m. to the home at Butler Village, Waterloo.

Officers were told that the boy’s father returned from work and asked for his wife.

The father also asked the boy why he was not in school.

The boy did not respond, but sped off on his bicycle.

The father entered the house and found his wife bleeding from multiple chop wounds.

He raised an alarm and paramedics and Freeport police were contacted.

The mother was taken to the San Fernando General Hospital where she underwent emergency surgery.

Officers of the Central Police Division began searching for the boy and found him hiding in the Freeport district.

He was arrested and officials of the Child Protection Unit were expected to assist in the police investigations.

    Just cause your name mother don't mean you are a good person.
    Still, my prayers go out to her.

  2. OMG those children of today, you can't talk to them. Mom i wish you a speedy recovery,this is heart renching, it will take a lot of counceling to get over this hurt. My prayers goes out to you, feel better, God's blessings. Leave it in the hands of God, he is still your son just let god take control of his life. The bible says this is a generation of vipers.

  3.

  4. You can take a horse to water but you cannot make it drink. Some parents need to understand no amount of pushing will get their disaffected child to engage in education. Some young people will only learn in hard knock schools, where if they are open and honest, recognise missed opportunities, learn from the experience and grab any opportunity, when in a blue moon, it comes knocking. Hard knock schools are any lockup or circumstances that cannot be escaped from: prisons, mental institutions and unemployment due to lack of qualifications, poor character and no marketable skills.
