Maureen Mullin of Westwood, Mass. is being charged with mayhem, attempted murder, assault and battery on a child with injury, and assault and battery with a dangerous weapon.
Around 4:50 pm on Monday, Westwood police responded to a report of a violent domestic disturbance at 126 Pond St.
Mullin reportedly attacked her 9-year-old daughter with a set of hedge clippers, causing significant injury but nothing life threatening. The father broke up the fight before too much harm had been done.
Mullin and her daughter were brought to a Boston-area hospital where Mullin was arraigned by the police. The father and their second 5-year-old child were unhurt.
There is a dangerousness hearing scheduled for next Monday.
