A Maryland woman is facing an attempted murder charge after slashing her daughter’s neck with a pair of scissors.
Anne Akers was arrested following the attack, which took place inside her home in the Wheaton-Glenmont neighborhood near Washington, DC.
The victim, Akers’ three-year-old daughter, was slashed before Akers turned the instrument on herself.
A relative, who noticed blood on the floor, called the police to the residence.
According to the New York Post, Akers has initially concealed the child beneath a blanket, surprising officers who had responded to assist her.
The child was aerovac’d to the local hospital via helicopter and is expected to survive.
