Police: Pa. Man Hits Amputee Mom Defending Child

UNIONTOWN, Pa. (AP)

A western Pennsylvania man has been jailed on charges that he hit his wheelchair-bound amputee mother as she tried to protect her 4-year-old grandson from an attack.

Eighteen-year-old Dontay Bradley Jr., of Uniontown, is charged with simple assault, terroristic threats, reckless endangerment and harassment.

Uniontown police say Bradley punched his mother in the face when she moved her wheelchair between Bradley and her 4- year-old grandson Tuesday night. Police say Bradley threatened to harm the boy and had a clothes iron in his hand as he approached the boy. Police did not immediately clarify how Bradley is related to the boy, or whether the iron was hot at the time.

Online court records don’t list an attorney for Bradley.
