Tired of the constant violence, she decided to report her 49-year-old son.
He was arrested by the Carabinieri of the Radiomobile Nucleus of the Provincial Command of Catania who handcuffed the man accused of mistreatment in the family.
The military intervened after the call of a woman who had given shelter to her victims in her home to save her from the violence of her son.
The carabinieri arrived on the spot, inside a building in the historic center of Catania, found that the victim, a 74-year-old woman, was in pain and with bruises on her arms as evidence of her son’s attack (a bruise would have been caused even from a bite).
Before being accompanied to the hospital, she said she had never reported her son for fear of harming him and she too for fear of retaliation.
But to defend her own safety and that of her husband, who is also an elderly man, she has decided to report her son.
The man, also due to alcohol abuse, in recent times had become particularly aggressive and violent.
And when the carabinieri went home they had to counteract the man’s reaction first verbally, with insulting and threatening sentences and then with an attempt to escape with kicks.
The man is now under house arrest with the application of the electronic bracelet.
