A Delaware man was arrested for allegedly abusing his own mother.
On Sunday, around 11 a.m., New Castle County Police were called to the Christiana Medical Center for a report of an abuse to an elderly woman.
An officer arrived and learned that a 79-year-old woman had been taken to the hospital. The officer learned the woman was unable to care for herself and relied heavily on her son, identified as 39-year-old Stephen Myers.
Investigators learned that the woman had been mistreated and suffered injuries to her upper body while in her son’s care, according to officials.
On Monday, Myers was arrested and taken into custody. He is charged with abuse, neglect, exploitation or mistreatment of an infirmed adult and assault in the second degree. He was released on $8,000 unsecured bond and was issued a no contact order.
