"I was choking him and punching him and biting and scratching and doing everything I could," she said.

When the suspect pulled his mom's hair, the son "got really, really mad," Chris said. "I got mad and starting hitting him with a handle from my scooter."

Cleveland police arrested Talbert Glenn at the scene, adding Glenn has a criminal record for drug and weapons possession. .
