A man gave his mother a lump over her left eye during an argument in her bedroom, officials said.
Andrew J. Hoppes shoved his mom into a bedroom door in her home in the 700 block of White Circle, Allen Township, Northampton Co., around 11:35 p.m. Friday and she hit her head on the doorknob, officials said.
The woman was in the bedroom with her husband at the time of the assault, they noted.
The woman had a lump over her eye that was the size of a golf ball when police arrived, and she was taken to the hospital for treatment, officials said.
Court papers do not say what Hoppes and his mother were quarreling about.
Hoppes, 24, of 3841 Dogwood Lane, Lehigh Township, Northampton Co., was arraigned early Saturday morning on charges of assault and harassment and released on $2,500 unsecured bail, according to court documents.
A preliminary hearing is set for 9 a.m. Dec. 16.
