NEW BRAUNFELS — Police arrested a New Braunfels man on Friday for allegedly assaulting his disabled mother, a New Braunfels Police Department spokesman said.

On Monday, 29-year-old Charles Philip Harzman remained held at the Comal County Jail under $13,000 bond, a spokeswoman there said.

David Ferguson, NBPD communications coordinator, said police charged Harzman with one count each of injury to a disabled individual, a third-degree felony; and interfering with an emergency call, a class A misdemeanor. Harzman got involved in a physical confrontation with his 55-year-old mother.

“The son is accused of striking his mother,” Ferguson said. “She is classified as a disabled person.”

He said that at about 10:55 p.m. Friday, officers went to an apartment in the 700 block of Howard Street at the Braunfels Haus Apartments in response to a 911 hang-up.

Police got to the home and found the mother and son who had ended their disturbance, which Ferguson described as having “become physical in nature.”

He said police spoke to Harzman and his mother, sorted out the details and then arrested the man. The mother and son had argued over domestic issues, the police spokesman said.
