A 23-year-old man is accused of stabbing his mother multiple times, and prosecutors say he admitted he did it after smoking marijuana and becoming paranoid, believing someone was about to rape him.
Terrell Banks faces one count of attempted first-degree intentional homicide, domestic abuse assessments, and one count of mayhem, domestic abuse assessments.
According to police, on Friday afternoon (February 2) cops were called out to the Dollar Tree on Erie St. near 3 Mile Rd. for a report of a woman who had recently been stabbed by her son inside their home.
Police learned the woman had wandered into the store bloodied and looking for help. It was determined the woman had been stabbed multiple times, and she identified her son as the suspect.
Her son, Terrell Banks, was then located and arrested.
