SALEM - A local man and his girlfriend are accused of beating up his mother at the apartment they all share.
Scott Poliskey, 39, and Allison Stewart, 32, were arrested Thursday and charged with a variety of crimes including simple assault, false imprisonment, obstructing the report of a crime and criminal threatening.
They were arrested after a bruised Margaret Poliskey, 61, showed up at the police department just after 4 p.m. Thursday to report they assaulted her during an argument.
She told police it began when she told them to stop yelling and swearing while she was on the phone.
The argument escalated and her son and Stewart became enraged, according to a press release detailing the incident. Poliskey alleged they slapped her in the face, threatened to kill her and pulled the phone away from her when she tried to call 9-1-1.
She told Officer Joseph Keating they pulled her by the hair, threw her onto a bed and held her down. When she tried to get up and leave, she told police they held her down against her will.
Poliskey had bruising on her arms, neck and left eye, along with a welt above her right eye, injuries police said were consistent with her claims.
Scott Poliskey and Stewart were held in the Rockingham County jail on $1,000 cash bail pending arraignment Friday in 10th Circuit Court, Salem District.
