Teen charged with alleged hammer attack on parents

Teen charged with alleged hammer attack on parents

A DUNDEE teenager has been charged with alleged attacks on his parents — which included use of a hammer.

The 17-year-old, who cannot be named for legal reasons, allegedly repeatedly hit his father on the head and body with a hammer, leaving him injured.

In addition, he allegedly repeatedly hit his mother’s head against a door to her injury.

The youth appeared in private at Dundee Sheriff Court.

He made no plea or declaration in relation to three charges on petition.

He is charged with assaulting his mother by seizing her by the hair, dragging her across a room and throwing her on to a bed.

He then allegedly repeatedly struck his mother’s head against a door, all to her injury.

The assault allegedly took place at a property in Dundee on Sunday. The teen is further charged with assaulting his father by knocking him to the ground and repeatedly punching and kicking him on the head and body.

He allegedly thereafter repeatedly struck his father on the head and body with a hammer, all to his injury.

It’s claimed he carried out the assault the following day at a different property in Dundee.

The teen is also charged with having an offensive weapon, namely a hammer, in a public place without reasonable excuse or lawful authority on Monday at a Dundee address. The case was continued for further investigation.
