In Omsk, a grandmother attacked her sleeping grandson with a hammer while his parents were in the kitchen, and then tried to stab her own elderly mother with a knife.

The Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation for the region writes about the incident

“According to investigators, on the afternoon of February 16, in an apartment in a residential building on Dmitrieva Street in the city of Omsk, the suspect inflicted bodily injuries on her nine-year-old grandson with a hammer, and then on her 86-year-old mother with a kitchen knife,” the department said.

As  SHOT adds , around seven in the morning the whole family was getting ready for breakfast. Father and mother were in the kitchen when they suddenly heard their son moaning. When they ran into the room, they saw that the 57-year-old grandmother was hitting her grandson, who was lying in bed, on the head with a hammer. The woman was pushed away by her parents, after which she ran into another room, where she tried to cut her 86-year-old mother with a kitchen knife. The woman then ran out of the apartment.

The arriving police caught the attacker. Now she and her grandson are in intensive care. The boy's great-grandmother has wounds on her neck and shoulder, but her life is not in danger. According to relatives, the suspect never showed aggression and worked at the Lyubava social center. The Investigative Committee opened a criminal case under the article "Attempted Murder"
