DETROIT (WWJ) -- An investigation is underway after a Detroit woman allegedly stabbed her son, leaving him in critical condition.

The 46-year-old woman got into a fight with her 26-year-old son around 10 p.m. Friday at a home along Eastburn Street in the area of Gratiot Avenue and 8 Mile Road on the city's east side.

The fight was reportedly between the mother and son, as well as some other family members. During the physical struggle, a mirror was knocked over and broken. That's when the woman grabbed a piece of glass and stabbed her son in the chest.

She was arrested at the scene and he was taken to a nearby hospital in critical condition.

The man's current condition and whether the mother is still behind bars are unclear.
