A Policía Local patrol arrested, on Monday night in Elche, a man accused of abusing his mother and not letting her out of the apartment for four days from Friday the 17th March.
She said he had become aggressive when she refused him money, pushing her and twisting her wrist. It was only when he was not paying attention that she had managed to call the police who came to her aid. She was accompanied by her own 90 year-old mother and stated that they were both terrified by the ordeal at the hands of her son who is an alleged gambling and drug addict.
