Police: Drunk man beat mom who tried to take keys

Police say the 72-year-old Northwest Side woman saw her intoxicated son outside after 2 a.m. Friday and tried to take away his car keys.

But instead of heeding his mother’s advice and going to bed, prosecutors said Jesus Quinones Jr. grabbed his mom by her head and shoulders, threw her to the ground and struck her several times against a concrete floor.

A neighbor in the 2900 block of North Allen Avenue heard the commotion, and police were soon called to the scene. Officers arrived to find the woman on her porch with blood on her face. They located Quinones in the backyard.

Quinones, 30, faces a felony count of aggravated battery to someone 60 years or older. His mother was taken to a hospital and required five stitches, prosecutors said Saturday.

Quinones, who lived at the Logan Square neighborhood home with his mom, became combative at the police station, court records show. He told a booking officer that he’d been drinking.

In bond court Saturday, Judge Laura Marie Sullivan ordered Quinones held on $250,000 bail. He’ll return to court Friday.
