The Redding Record-Searchlight

RED BLUFF -- A 40-year-old Red Bluff mother was arrested Tuesday on suspicion of attempted murder and felony child abuse after she admitted to slashing her 13-year-old son's neck with a knife, police said.

Theresa Marie Lewis was booked into Tehama County jail, Red Bluff police said.

Officers said they went to a South Jackson Street apartment around 1 p.m., after receiving a report of a teenage boy who had possibly overdosed on pills and had a cut on his neck.

When officers arrived at the apartment, they found the teenager with a severe cut across his throat and neck, police said. Lewis admitted to having inflicted the cut, they said.

The boy, whose name was not immediately released, was taken by ambulance to St. Elizabeth Community Hospital in Red Bluff before being flown by helicopter to Enloe Medical Center in Chico.
