HOUMA, LA (WVUE) - A Houma man has been arrested after allegedly beating his 82-year-old stepfather with a chair and repeatedly kicking him in the face.
Simon Fontenot, 51, was arrested Sunday and charged with aggravated second degree battery.
Authorities say that the charge stems from a disturbance in east Houma in the 300 block of Hidalgo Court.
An elderly man reported that his stepson approached him inside of his residence, beat him with a chair, threw him to the ground and repeatedly kicked him in the face.
The victim was transported to Terrebonne General Medical Center where he was treated for bone injuries, including multiple facial fractures.
The cause of the attack is unknown at this time.
Deputies located Fontenot Sunday afternoon and arrested him for one count of aggravated second degree battery. His bond has been set at $50,000.
