Mary Sullivan, 49, 1300 block Cleveland Road W., was charged with domestic violence.
Sullivan’s elderly mother had been living with Sullivan at her Huron home when at about 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, she broke down and called her other daughter, according to the report. The mother said Sullivan hit her face and head multiple times that evening for turning on the television, the report said. Officers observed fresh scratches and scrapes on the woman’s neck and cheek.
Sullivan denied striking her mother’s face, saying she only struck her hand with the television remote because her mother was angry Sullivan spilled a drink, the report said. Sullivan’s older sister, however, said Sullivan had been abusing her mother for 18 months, but her mother had refused to report it up until that point, the report said.
Sullivan was taken to the Erie County jail, where she remains on $5,000 bond.
