A mum was heard screaming outside her home in Sydney’s eastern suburbs after allegedly stabbing her own son.

A mother accused of stabbing her own son multiple times at their family home in Sydney’s eastern suburbs screamed “I love you” as she was escorted into the back of a police van.

Officers were called to a home on Drumalbyn Rd in Bellevue Hill just after 1.30am on Saturday where they found 22-year-old Hugo Ball suffering life-threatening injuries.

NSW Ambulance Inspector Giles Buchanan said Ball had extremely low blood pressure, suggesting he had lost a lot of blood

“The location of the wounds can certainly be fatal,” he said.

His 55-year-old mother Samantha Palmer was arrested at the home and taken to Waverley Police Station where she spent 13 hours before she was charged with wounding a person with intent to cause grievous bodily harm.

She could be heard screaming “I love you” as authorities whisked her away into the back of a police van.

“I’m the mother of this child, for God’s sake,” Palmer could be heard saying.

She was refused bail and will front court on Sunday.

A knife was seized from the home.
