A woman accused of assaulting her 94-year-old mother with a hammer inside her Atlanta home is to face charges.
Sandy Mathis, 56, has warrants for her arrest on charges of aggravated assault and simple battery for the incident that happened earlier this month.
Mathis lived has lived with her mother, Willie Monroe, for the last 20 years.
The incident was allegedly prompted after Monroe asked for Mathis’ boyfriend to leave her home that night according to Channel 2 Action News.
‘My mama’s old school,’ Ronald Monroe, Mathis’ sister said. ‘It’s 10 o’clock on a Monday night … my mama’s like, “Tell your company he has to leave.” And my sister became enraged.’
Willie Monroe survived the attack and told police that her daughter picked up a hammer and hit her head, back and hands, Brown said.
‘My mom says she was on the ground in a fetal position as my sister was just hitting her with the hammer, Ronald Monroe said.
‘My sister had been drinking something. Her eyes were pink, according to my mother,’ Monroe told DailyMail.com. ‘But children and parents act the same way no matter what age they are.’
Mathis told police a different story claiming her mother’s injuries were from a recent fall.
In a police incident report, officers noticed bruising on her hands but no signs of injuries to her head.
