A man was arrested after he allegedly attacked his over 70-year-old mother in Algonquin by “repeatedly” striking her and pushing her, court documents allege.
Daniel O. Susma, 28, of the 1700 block of North River Road in Algonquin, was charged with aggravated battery of a senior citizen, aggravated domestic battery and five counts of domestic battery.
A criminal complaint filed in McHenry County Circuit Court alleges Susma hit his mother in the face, arms and back, causing red markings and abrasions.
During the Monday incident, he also allegedly used his hands and applied pressure around the woman’s nose and mouth, impeding her breathing, the complaint said.
Susma scratched the arms of his mother and repeatedly pushed and hit her in the back, the complaint said.
He also allegedly hit the woman, who is over 70, in the face repeatedly with his hands, causing red swollen abrasions on her face, according to the complaint.
Officers with the Algonquin Police Department arrested Susma around 10:15 p.m. on Monday.
He remains held in the McHenry County Jail on a $25,000 bond and would need to post $2,500 cash to be released.
Susma is scheduled to appear in court again Thursday morning for a bond hearing.
