A 33-year-old Northern Westchester woman who allegedly stabbed her 8-year-old son has been identified.
Dayona Hammonds, of Peekskill, was arrested Monday, Feb. 17, after Peekskill Police responded to a home on Main Street after receiving a 911 call about a woman threatening to stab her son, said Peekskill Police.
When police arrived, the boy had already suffered a stab wound to his torso, police said.
The boy was rushed to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
Peekskill Police Lt. Jack Galusha said Tuesday, Feb. 18, that Hammonds was charged with felony assault during arraignment around 4 p.m. Monday.
Hammonds is being held at the Westchester County Jail. She is scheduled to appear in court again later Tuesday, Galusha said.
