A MAN has admitted attacking his mum after she told him to tidy up after himself.

Blackburn magistrates heard Aaron Taylor, 27, was arrested but returned the following day and when his mum couldn’t tell him where his ‘weed’ was, he attacked her again, hitting her repeatedly about the head with a trainer.

Taylor, who was bailed to an address in Oban Avenue, Blackburn, pleaded guilty to two charges of assaulting Ann-Marie Taylor.

He was remanded on bail for the preparation of a pre-sentence report with a warning that all options, including custody, would be open to the sentencing bench.

Parveen Akhtar, prosecuting, said Mrs Taylor had returned home at about 9pm to find her son and some of his friends in the kitchen. She asked the friends to leave and then asked Taylor to tidy the place up.

“He screamed at her that she had ruined his life and then started throwing things around,” said Miss Akhtar. “He pushed his mother against a door frame and when she tried to leave pushed her into a chair and said she was going nowhere.”

The police were eventually called and Taylor was arrested. At 2pm the following day he was hammering on her door and demanding to be let in so he could collect his things.

“Mrs Taylor asked her younger son to pass his belonging out through the window but the defendant took the opportunity to climb in,” said Miss Akhtar.

“He demanded to know where his weed was and blamed his mother for him being locked up overnight.”

When Mrs Taylor tried to leave her son dragged her back and locked the door.

He said if she tried to go anywhere he would kill her and than started hitting her about the head with a trainer.

Mrs Taylor eventually managed to shout for help from a bedroom window and a passer-by came to her assistance.

Jonathan Taylor, defending, said his client fully accepted his behaviour had been ‘wholly inappropriate’.

“Being at his mother’s address has lead to a clash of personalities which has lead to these unpleasant incidents,” said Mr Taylor.
