San Mateo man delays plea for allegedly stabbing mom
August 20, 2013, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff Report

John Jacobberger

The San Mateo man accused of stabbing his mother in the chest and arm when she came to check on him last week delayed entering a plea yesterday to attempted murder.

John Jacobberger, 53, is also charged with felony assault and felony physical elder abuse in the Aug. 12 incident that sent his 76-year-old mother to the hospital.

Prosecutors say police found Jacobberger standing over his wounded mother on the second floor of his West Fourth Avenue apartment complex and he reportedly told them both “I stabbed my mother, just shoot me” and “It’s the drugs that made me do it.”

On Monday, Jacobberger appeared with a court-appointed attorney but delayed a plea until Aug. 27. In the meantime, he remains held without bail.

Jacobberger reportedly wounded his mother after she spotted him inside his unit surrounded by knives and asked him to go see his doctor.
