A Bad Son at Conisborough
Alfred Ernest Lee, labourer, Conisborough, was summoned for having assaulted Elizabeth Lee, at that place on the 13th inst.
The defendant did not appear.
The complainant said that she was the mother of the defendant. Her son came home abouthalf past nine on the night in question, and commenced “rowing about.”
She asked him to be quiet, but he became more noisy, and struck the table several times with a walking stick, and he also struck her on the arm with the stick.
He has since said he was sorry for what he had done. He generally comes home drunk on Saturdays and Sundays, and causes a bother.
She had desired him to leave, but he would not go, and she now wish to be protected.
The Chairman said the defendant would have to appear at the next court date to be bound over to keep the peace.
