Woman accused of attacking man, his mother with hatchet in Seattle

Seattle police arrested a woman accused of attacking a man and his mother with a hatchet in the First Hill neighborhood on Saturday night.

The mother-son pair were walking in the 800 block of James Street around 9 p.m. when the 40-year-old son found a dollar bill on the ground a picked it up.

As the two continued walking, a woman started yelling at them and began swinging a hatchet at them, the victims told police.

The man had a large cut to his shin that required a trip to the hospital and his 64-year-old mother suffered "less serious" injuries and refused medical attention. 

The suspect was taken into custody without incident on assault charges. She required hospitalization for a head wound. 

This attack was just one of several violent incidents in Seattle over the weekend.
