Man beats and kicks his 98-year-old mother in western Greece

Police in western Greece arrested a 55-year-old man who has repeatedly beaten his 98-year-old mother on Sunday evening.

The victim’s cries for help alerted the neighbors in Karaiskakis village by Arta who immediately called the police.

The woman was taken to hospital and had marks from kicks all over her body. Her life is not in danger as the fragile elderly was not seriously injured despite the brutal attack she suffered by her son.

Neighbors speak of a man who has often had abusive behavior.

After spending the night in detention, the 55-year-old man was taken to court on charges of  “domestic violence.”  His trial will continue on Tuesday, state broadcaster ERT reported.
