IRONDALE — Irondale Police Department officers responded to a domestic violence call in the 5500 block of Hunters Hill Road at 11:04 p.m., Tuesday, September 7. Upon arrival, it was determined that a 46 year old white male had assaulted his 77 year old mother.
“The lady was able to run to a neighbors house where she had called 911,” Irondale Sgt. Michael Mangina reported in a written statement. “She advised officers that her son was still in the residence and had threatened to kill himself.”
Mangina stated that the victim’s son was familiar to police and is known to suffer from mental and emotional issues. He was also arrested in Trussville on June 23, 2021 after firing a gun into a restaurant.
The victim provided a key and Irondale tactical officers entered the residence just after 4 a.m. on Wednesday morning, September 8. The subject was taken into protective custody to be evaluated at a local hospital. There were no injuries to officers or the subject.
“We are not releasing the names and it is our hope that this subject gets the help and counseling he needs,” Mangina stated. “Once again, our officers did an awesome job with the utmost professionalism and respect to all involved.”
