Sheriff's deputies were called out to a northwest Harris County neighborhood yesterday after a passing driver saw a mother dragging her young son out of a house and throwing him onto the pavement. When police finally got there, they encountered a disturbing scene.
Google streetview Authorities responded to James River Lane in northwest Harris County Thursday to reports a mother was brutally stabbing and beating her son.
The mother, police say, had badly mutilated her son with a knife, stabbing the four-year-old boy all over his body, before dragging him out of the house to continue assaulting him in the driveway. The mother, 23-year-old Jenea Mungia, was topless when deputies arrived, according to KTRK. Medical responders airlifted the boy to Memorial Herman, taking him straight to surgery.
"Evidently she was in some kind of state," Harris County sheriff's deputy Thomas Gilliland told the Chron. "The scene itself was a terrible one for deputies to arrive to."
