18-year-old says mom attacked him with meat cleaver.

A 45-year-old woman was arrested Tuesday after her 18-year-old son told police she attacked him with a large meat clever in a home they share.

Ocala police said 18-year-old Chamborg Hecht sustained lacerations to his head and fingers as well as bite marks to his chest and arm. He told investigators he was trying to get away from his mother, whom he lives with, when she wouldn't let him close a bathroom and began attacking him.

Chamborg said his mother, Brenda Hecht, obtained a large meat cleaver and attacked him with it. He also told investigators she put the knife to his neck and threatened to cut off his head and other parts of his anatomy. Police said Brenda told them she was acting in self-defense and admitted to hitting Chamborg in the head with the meat cleaver. She was arrested and charged with attempted murder and jailed.
