A Northborough woman was charged on Friday evening with attempted murder, allegedly accused of stabbing her husband multiple times with a kitchen paring knife, according to
Sally E. Brown, 31, 2 Coram Farm Rd., Northborough, was charged with assault and battery, assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, and attempted murder.
Officers responded to the home at Coram Farm Road at 7:30 p.m. Friday, after receiving a 911 call from Brown's husband, who said he had been stabbed multiple times by his wife, said police. When officers arrived, the door was locked. After a few minutes, a black female (later identified as Brown) opened the door and police told her to show her hands, according to the report. "You can shoot me if you want. I did it," Brown said.
When Officer Nathan Fiske entered the home, he saw a young child walking around the house naked, and the child appeared that he just came out of the bathtub. Down the hall, the victim was located lying naked on the bed, said police. Tied by his feet to the end of the bed, he had suffered three small stab wounds to his buttocks.
The victim was transported to UMass Medical Center, and has been released.
Brown posted $1,000 bail, and will be arraigned in Westborough District Court on Monday morning.
