A local man is being held on cash bail after allegedly stabbing his mother “multiple times” last night.
Daniel F. Uhlman, 44, of Westborough, was arrested on Feb. 13, and charged with assault with intent to murder, assault and battery by means of a dangerous weapon, and mayhem.
According to a police statement by Chief Alan Gordon, officers were called to Haskell Street just before 10 p.m. for a report of a woman who had been stabbed. Responding units arrived to the location and found the woman inside the home “covered in blood” with stab wounds on her head, torso, face, and left wrist.
The woman reportedly identified her son, Uhlman, as the attacker, according to police.
Police searched the home but were unable to find Uhlman. They did find blood in “numerous rooms” inside the house.
A state Department of Transportation worker later called Westborough Fire to report a man walking east on East Main Street “covered in blood.” The man was about a half mile from the home, according to the report.
Officers later located Uhlman about at the intersection of Walker and East Main streets and he was arrested without incident. Uhlman is being held on $5,000 cash bail.
The woman was treated by EMTs and transported to UMass Medical University, where she is being treated for life threatening injuries.
Uhlman will be arraigned later this morning.
Uhlman, who lived at the home with his mother, had previously been arrested and charged with negligent driving and marked lanes violations, according to an online court report in the Worcester Telegram & Gazette.
