VICTORVILLE, Calif.(VVNG.com) A 44-year-old Victorville man is behind bars for causing serious injury to his elderly mother.
On April 29, 2017, Deputy F. Demara, from the Victorville Police Department, responded to a call of elder abuse in the 16200 block of La Cubre Drive.
“The suspect, Henry Alexander Paz, was reportedly upset that the victim, his 75-year-old mother, did not want him to have a female visitor at her home where he was staying,” authorities said in a press release.
According to Sheriff’s spokeswoman Mara Rodriguez, Paz pushed the victim to the floor, breaking her hip and fracturing her leg. He then demanded money from her and took her cell phone.
“Before leaving the residence, Paz closed the victim in her bedroom and closed all other doors inside the home and refused to call for medical assistance,” stated Rodriguez.
The 75-year-old woman managed to pull herself to the front door of the home. A passerby heard the elderly woman screaming for help and called 911.
Medical personnel arrived and transported her to a local hospital for treatment.
Police issued a search warrant for the arrest of Paz. On May 14, 2017, Deputy Demara located the suspect at a residence in the 11800 block of Nehmans Way, in the city of Adelanto. He was arrested without incident and booked at High Desert Detention Center for robbery, false imprisonment, battery with serious injury, and harm to an elder.
He is scheduled to appear in Victorville Superior Court on May 16, 2017.
