A reportedly drug-addicted man was arrested on multiple charges Monday after allegedly shaking his mother violently — aggravating a back injury — after she refused to give him money, according to police.
About 4 p.m., the 63-year-old mother reportedly walked into the Bayview Police Station and told officers that she had been assaulted by her son two days earlier at her home in the 1000 block of Ingerson Avenue. The son reportedly became irate after she denied his request for money, and the mom told police that her son has a drug
“The suspect became furious and shook his mother violently for several seconds before she was able to kick him and get away,” according to police.
The shaking “aggravated a pre-existing injury to her back,” and the mother complained of lasting pain when she reported the incident to police.
She told officers that they could find her son at her home, police said, and when they arrived he was sitting on the bed in his room.
“He was surrounded by numerous credit, debit, identification and other miscellaneous cards and checkbooks” that did not belong to him, police said.
Five people identified in those cards were contacted by investigators and each one reportedly confirmed that they had been robbed.
The man was booked on charges that include aggravated assault and theft.
