CRESSON, Texas -

The Parker County Sheriff's office arrested a Cresson man for allegedly beating his mother with a hammer during an argument.

Jacob Farren, 30, is facing an aggravated assault charge for the Tuesday evening attack in the 100 block of Brook Drive.

Just before 7 p.m., his 54-year-old mother called 911 saying her son struck her with the hammer, then took off in her car.

When paramedics arrived, they found the victim suffering cuts, scrapes and serious bruises. She told deputies that Farren tried to gouge her eyes out.

Her son was eventually tracked down about five hours later and taken to jail.

He remains behind bars in lieu of a $75,000 bond.
