Teen hugs mom, then stabs her

A 15-year-old boy in a Dallas-Fort Worth suburb is in juvenile custody after police say he pretended to hug his mom, then stabbed her in the back with a 6-inch kitchen knife. Police arrested the teenager Tuesday morning in suburban Grapevine. His arrest came about three hours after his mother called police, saying she'd been stabbed in the back.

Authorities say the woman was treated at a Dallas hospital for a non-life-threatening wound.

According to police, the boy and his mom had an argument Monday night. He pretended to apologize Tuesday, but instead stabbed her while they embraced. The mother ran to her bedroom, locked the door and called 911.

A police spokesman said the boy's identity is being withheld because of his age, but he faces a juvenile charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
