A 15-year-old Oak Hill teen was arrested and charged with aggravated battery after police said he attacked his mother with a razor blade.
Wesley Evans IV was taken to the Volusia Regional Juvenile Detention Center in Daytona Beach on Sunday night after cutting his mother at least three times, twice on the back and once on the finger, according to a New Smyrna Beach police report.
Sherry Hayward Walker, 38, required several stitches to close her wounds before she was treated and released from Bert Fish Medical Center, police said.
Police officials believe Walker was taking her son to a family member's home in New Smyrna Beach because he was not complying with house arrest orders for an undisclosed criminal conviction.
The arrest report indicated Walker told officers her son has been causing her a lot of problems and she was initially going to take him to the Oak Hill Police Department, but said they could not help her. So she headed to a Ronnoc Lane residence in New Smyrna Beach.
When Evans refused to get out of the car, police said Walker reached back to open the rear door and the teen attacked her. He ran from the scene, but was located a short distance away.
Police said they found a 3-inch razor blade in the back of the car
