Juvenile Arrested After Assaulting Grandma

MARIANNA - A juvenile is under arrest Thursday morning for brutally assaulting his grandmother.

Just after Thursday midnight in Marianna, someone called the Jackson County Sheriff's Office to report the crime.

The grandmother had been beaten, and her car and a shotgun were stolen.

Deputies say the victim had refused to give the grandson the keys to her car, so he started choking her and forcefully took them from her purse.

They say he then cut her phone lines to keep her from calling for help.

The juvenile was arrested on several charges including domestic battery by strangulation and grand theft auto.
