Police arrest Beit Shemesh man, 30, suspected of beating mother

Police arrest a 30-year-old man in Beit Shemesh on suspicion of violently assaulting his mother.

The mother, who is in her 50s, fled her home to a neighbor earlier today and complained about the son’s violence. Police say she is bruised and bleeding, but her wounds are relatively light.

After the mother fled, the son locked himself in her house and refused police demands that he exit the home. He was arrested only after officers battered down the door and rushed into the house.
