This week, police arrested a 43-year-old man by the name of Randolph Stein for elder abuse. Police say that Stein had punched his 75-year-old father in the face, prompting his arrest for assault.
On Saturday, police came to Stein's residence at 7:00 PM and placed him under arrest. Officers were called to the residence when someone called to report yelling and loud thumping. After police came to Stein's home, they say he appeared agitated, but said no one was in danger despite loud noise reports.
Police then entered Stein's home and saw that his father was there with a large bruise under his left eye. Officers questioned the elder and he told them that his son tends to flip out on him and scream at him. After much prodding, he finally admitted that his son punched him with a closed fist the night before.
Stein was placed under arrest, charged with elder abuse and held on a $10,000 bond.
