Man arrested after mom needs surgery


HUNLOCK TOWNSHIP, LUZERNE COUNTY (WOLF) -- Police say a man is charged with aggravated assault for shoving his mother.

Robert Swiatek, Jr., 49, was at the home when the 77-year-old mom suffered a broken collarbone and hip when she fell on Tuesday, police said.

She had to have surgery, although she initially didn't want to go to the hospital, police said.

The criminal complaint says Swiatek admitted they were arguing about his drug use, but denied pushing her. His bail was set at $150,000.
