Police: Man arrested after stabbing mom in Johns Creek

Posted: Updated:

A man was arrested after police said he stabbed his mother in Johns Creek.

The incident happened inside a home on Ogeechee Drive Thursday afternoon.

Police said Andre Ottey, 33, stabbed his mother, who police have not named, in the torso, neck and arm.

When police arrived, the victim was still inside the home and, after some negotiation, Ottey surrendered to officers.

Authorities said the mother was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Ottey was charged with aggravated assault and booked into the Fulton County Jail.

In 2011 police were called to a Johns Creek business where Ottey was causing a disturbance. During his arrest he head-butted an officer, according to police.

Police said Ottey suffers from mental problems and exhibits such behavior when he's off his medication.
