…and then stealing her teeth… seriously. Just sickening.
Houston, TX — Christopher Harding, 23, stands accused of physically assaulting his disabled mother and running off with her dentures.
Police say the incident occurred at his mother’s home earlier this month. According to Harding’s mother, Mettie Cartwright, the man grabbed her by the throat, pushed her to the ground, punched her in the face and applied painful pressure to her neck with his hand. She told police that her son held her neck so tight she had trouble breathing.
While he had her down on the ground, he reportedly used his free hand to reach inside the woman’s mouth and yank out her upper plate. Harding then fled the home with the teeth. Police said a witness was able to back up the woman’s claim.
Harding was arrested, charged with injury to a disabled person and is currently being held in the Harris County Jail without bond.
