An Indiana woman was found alive with a large kitchen knife stuck in her head after allegedly being stabbed by her son multiple times, police said.
When authorities arrived at Susan Early’s Brownsburg house on Monday afternoon, they found her lying in her front yard with the knife still buried in her skull and multiple stab wounds.
Despite her severe injuries, cops stated the girl remained “alert and conscious.”
Kyle Braun, her 31-year-old son, reportedly attacked and beat her inside her kitchen before departing the residence soon before 12.30 p.m., she informed responding authorities.
Neighbors who hurried to aid treat Early’s knife wounds when she escaped screaming from the house guided cops in the direction the victim’s son had fled.
Early was airlifted in serious condition to Eskanazi Hospital in Indianapolis, where she underwent emergency surgery.
Braun was apprehended shortly after after authorities searched the area.
He was treated in the hospital for minor hand injuries before being charged with attempted murder.
He also faces a charge of battery by bodily waste on an officer for allegedly spitting on a cop during his arrest.
Brownsburg Police Cpt. Jennifer Barrett told Fox59 that Braun had recently fled a mental health facility in Ohio and had a warrant out for his arrest.
“The best we can tell is he had left a facility, a mental health facility, where he was being monitored by the Ohio parole officers,” Barrett said.
“But he had cut that GPS monitoring device and left and the last time they had saw him was March 23.”
She also stated that his mental health and temper difficulties were most likely factors in his alleged attack on his mother.
He is still being held in the Hendricks County Jail with no bond.
