January 6, 2012
A Morro Bay woman allegedly entered her sleeping mother’s bedroom and started beating the 86-year-old woman on Monday at about 3 a.m.
Neighbors heard the altercation and called police who arrived to find the elderly woman suffering from visible injuries. Police also discovered the victim had previously taken out a restraining order on her daughter Susanna Dyer, 63.
Police arrested Dyer for felony elder abuse, domestic violence battery, and a violation of a court order.
The victim is currently in the care of family members, said Morro Bay Police Commander Bryan Millard.
“We are fortunate we could get to her in a timely manner,” Millard said. “We are looking into any abuse that may have occurred such as financial, physical or mental.”
