A 13-year-old Corpus Christi, Texas boy is being held in juvenile custody after his mother accused him of attacking her with a hammer. The attack reportedly happened on Saturday night after the boy and his 33-year-old mother got into an argument.
Police were called to the scene where the boy had reportedly fled the scene. He reportedly left his mother’s residence at the low income Costa Tarragona Apartments but later broke into the home and hid under his bed to avoid detection. Police later found him underneath his bed and arrested him.
The boy’s mother suffered minor injuries to her arm and face, but reportedly suffered a significant gash to her head. She was treated and released from a nearby hospital.
The boy has been charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
The names of the victim and the teen have not been released. Police say that is standard protocol in cases of domestic abuse.
