Westborough – Police Chief Alan Gordon released this statement this morning:
On 2/13/14, at approximately 9:48 PM, the Westborough Police Department received a call from 1 Haskell St. reporting that a 72 year old female had been stabbed multiple times. The arriving units located the female in the house. She was covered in blood with stab wounds to her head and torso and injuries to her facial area and left wrist.
The female was able to identify her attacker as her son, Daniel F. Uhlman, age 44 of 1 Haskell St. Westborough. A search of the house revealed blood throughout numerous rooms but the attacker had left the scene. A short time later a MA. DOT worker notified Fire Captain Robert Rand that he had observed a male covered in blood walking east on E. Main St. about a half mile from the house.
Officers Domenic Annunziata and Greg McRae located Daniel Uhlman at the intersection of Walker St. and E. Main St. He was covered in blood. He was taken into custody without incident.
At the scene, the 72 year old victim was treated by Paramedics from the Westborough Fire Dept. and was transported to UMass Medical University campus with life threatening injuries.
Daniel was booked at the Westborough Police Station for assault with intent to murder, assault and battery by means of a dangerous weapon and mayhem. He is being held on $5,000 cash bail and will be arraigned at WDC this morning.
