New York Man Elbows His Mother In The Face, Then Destroys Her Phone To Prevent Her From Calling 911

A New York man is now facing charges after attacking his mother and then destroying her phone so that she couldn’t call for help, Finger Lakes Daily News reported.

Deputies from Wayne County Sheriff’s Office received a call about a domestic dispute Easter Sunday, at around 10:15 in the morning. When they arrived to the Williamson home, they discovered that Gerrick Powers had attacked his mother. According to police documents, Powers allegedly grabbed his mother, elbowed her in the face, and then destroyed her phone so that she couldn’t notify authorities.

Instead of spending time in police custody, the 31-year-old has been charged with harassment and criminal mischief, then was released on an appearance ticket. The Wayne County Sheriff’s Department has yet to comment on the blatant leniency.
