-Anchorage, AK

An Anchorage man brutally attacked his 76-year-old mother, and tried putting the blame on a bear.


On Saturday police received a 911 call and heard a woman say "help me quick" and "leave me alone" before the line went dead.


An investigation revealed that the woman's son, 50-year-old Karl Engelke, hit her with what might have been a brick breaking her ribs, bruising her lungs, and causing several facial fractures.


The victim was taken to the hospital and Engelke was taken to jail on multiple charges.
