A mother has been arrested on attempted murder and torture charges after, police say, she stabbed her autistic son multiple times Sunday night in their Modesto apartment.
Modesto Police Sgt. Rick Armanderez said 13-year-old Miles Hankins was severely wounded in the attack on the 2800 block of West Rumble Road just after 6 p.m.
Police say they found Miles in the hallway of the Modesto apartment, covered in blood, his legs tied together with rope, stabbed several times.
The boy's mother, Anitra Hankins, was taken into custody. Hankins appeared to be a state of shock and was not fully cooperating with police.
"There's cops with their guns draw talking to the lady upstairs. She was covered in blood," said next-door neighbor Christopher Tooze. "He had stab wounds all over him, really bloody and a big stab wound in his head."
