ARCADIA – A man accused of punching his 71-year-old mother repeatedly Thursday surrendered after barricading himself inside a home, police said.
Michael Jonathan Price, 31, fled into the home in the 400 block of East Camino Real Avenue when officers attempted to speak with him during a battery investigation. Officers evacuated nearby residents as a precaution.
Officers responded to the home at 9:41 a.m. Price surrendered at 2:51 p.m. and residents were allowed back into their homes.
The 71-year-old mother was treated for injuries considered not life-threatening.
Price was booked on suspicion of elder abuse and is being held in lieu of $250,000 bail.
