A Baton Rouge man is accused of knocking his mother to the ground and stabbing his brother twice during a dispute at the family’s home on Tiger Bend.

According the arrest report the East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff’s Office was contacted on Sunday, Aug. 4 in regards to a domestic dispute. When the deputy arrived he found a woman suffering from cuts to her hand and man suffering from stab wounds.

The woman told the deputy she was involved in an argument with her son, Eric W. Williamson, 37, who lived in the home with her. During the disagreement he allegedly pushed her and caused her hand to hit a glass window. It broke and caused the cuts to her hand.

The second victim told the deputy he went into the living room to investigate when he heard the sound of breaking glass. That’s when he learned about the altercation and confronted his brother. He claims his brother pulled out a pocked knife and stabbed him twice in the leg.

The man was transported to a local hospital for treatment of his wounds and is expected to make a full recovery.

Williamson allegedly fled the home after the altercation in his girlfriend’s truck. The truck was later spotted at another residence. The deputy questioned Williamson, but he denied all of the allegations of physical abuse.

“[I] observed that [Williamson] had a pocket knife clipped on the exterior of his right pocket that had blood on the blade,” the arrest report noted. “[I] also observed there was blood on the passenger side of the girlfriend’s truck.”

Williamson was arrested and charged with Domestic Abuse Battery and Aggravated Second-Degree Battery. He was booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison. His bond was set at $12,500.
