Son stabs mother in Athens hotel room

A 38-year-old Russian national was in stable condition at Erythros Stavros Hospital in Athens over the weekend after being repeatedly stabbed by her 20-year-old son.

The incident reportedly occurred early on Friday in a hotel room in Athens in the presence of the victim’s second child, a 10-year-old boy.

The family members were reportedly visiting the capital for a fur trade show.

Early police reports suggested the suspect had a history of mental problems and had been treated at a Russian hospital.

The 10-year-old was taken to Aglaia Kyriakou children’s hospital for observation.
