Bellevue Hill mother Samantha Palmer accused of stabbing son Hugo Ball

A mother accused of stabbing her own son multiple times at their family home in Sydney’s eastern suburbs screamed “I love you” as she was escorted into the back of a police van.

Officers were called to a home on Drumalbyn Rd in Bellevue Hill just after 1.30am on Saturday where they found 22-year-old Hugo Ball suffering life-threatening injuries.

It is alleged he had been stabbed in his upper body.

He was treated at the scene before being rushed to St Vincent’s Hospital in a serious condition. His condition has since stabilised following surgery.

NSW Ambulance Inspector Giles Buchanan told 9News Mr Ball had extremely low blood pressure suggesting he had lost a lot of blood

“The location of the wounds can certainly be fatal,” he said.

His 55-year-old mother Samantha Palmer was arrested at the home and taken to Waverley Police Station where she spent 13 hours before she was charged with wounding a person with intent to cause grievous bodily harm (domestic violence).

She could be heard screaming “I love you” as authorities whisked her away into the back of a police van.

“I’m the mother of this child for God’s sake,” Mr Palmer could be heard saying.

She was refused bail and will front court on Sunday.

A knife was seized from the home.

Tottenham teammates Hugo Lloris and Son Heung-min have to be separated at half-time of 1-0 win over Everton

Tottenham duo Hugo Lloris and Son Heung-min had to be separated by teammates during a confrontation at half-time of a 1-0 victory over Everton in the English Premier League.

As the shouting goalkeeper Lloris pushed Son, Giovani Lo Celso and Harry Winks intervened to split the clashing teammates on the field before they headed into the dressing room.

Just before the break, Son lost the ball, giving Everton’s Richarlison a chance to equalise, but his shot sailed wide.

The Tottenham spat seemed to have faded by the time the players returned from the half-time break, with Lloris seen embracing Son as they came out of the tunnel and again after the game.

Lloris admitted he was “annoyed” at Son for not “pressing properly” in the last minute before the break, creating the chance for Richarlison.

“It belongs to the changing room,” Lloris said.

“What happened between me and Son is part of football sometimes. There is no problem at all. You can see at the end of the game we are more than happy to be part of the team.

“It’s annoying but that’s part of football. No problem. Move on.”

Manager Jose Mourinho produced a masterclass in his trademark deflection tactics, saying he was to blame for the confrontation and adding he “was really pleased” to see it.

“I was critical of my boys because they are not, in my opinion, critical enough with themselves and with each other. I asked them to be more demanding, I asked them to demand more from others, I asked them to put their colleagues under that pressure of team spirit that you have to give everything for everybody.

“A couple of bad words … but I think it is something very important for the team to grow up. I was really pleased.”

There was no intense atmosphere from the fans to blame for raising tensions since the game was played in an empty stadium in north London due to coronavirus pandemic restrictions.
