A 37-year-old man is accused of beating his mother after she didn't answer her front door.

Michael Bowen was arrested on Jan. 3 and charged with injury to the elderly.

According to an arrest affidavit, Bowen went to his mother's home last Friday and knocked on the front door and became upset when she didn't answer fast enough.

He then climbed into the house through a window, dragged his mother on the ground and slammed her head with a door, the affidavit stated.

Bowen fled after the assault, but his mother called police. SAPD officers located him and took him into custody that same day.
