Man allegedly stabbed by own mum hit with AVO against dad

The father of a troubled 22-year-old who was allegedly stabbed by his own mother has taken out an apprehended violence order against him.

Hugo Ball, 22, has been living with his businessman father Ian since the alleged November attack.   

But police charged him with with destroying or damaging property worth less than $2000 on Sunday night following an alleged altercation at his father’s Sydney home.

Police were called to the Stewart Street home in Paddington about 9.30am on Sunday following reports of an incident.

Following investigations, detectives also applied for an AVO on Hugo’s father’s behalf which restricts him from going within 50 metres of the family home or his father’s workplace.

Hugo must not contact Mr Ball unless it is via telephone, and he cannot harass, stalk or intimidate him.

The labourer was pictured recovering at his corporate high flyer father’s $5.5million Paddington terrace, his arm in a sling, shortly after the alleged incident.

Hugo’s mother Samantha was released on bail 10 days ago following her November arrest.

The 55-year-old was charged with wounding a person with intent to cause grievous bodily harm (DV), which carries a potential 25 year jail sentence.

Her lawyers argued Hugo told her he had ‘committed murder’ and that she was acting in self defence.

The court also heard the Scots College graduate has a history of drug abuse. 

It is alleged she stabbed her son several times with a 12-inch blade in their $3.1million Bellevue Hill home. 

Hugo was rushed to St Vincent’s Hospital after allegedly losing two litres of blood.  

More to come.
