Florida Teen Arrested For Beating and Stabbing His Mother Because She Asked Him to Clean His Room
A Florida teen has been arrested for attempting to kill his mother after she requested that he clean his room.
According to Fox Orlando, Tobias “Toby” Jacob Brewer, 17, was detained and placed in juvenile jail on Nov. 30 after reportedly beating and stabbing his mother and leading law enforcement on a pursuit.
The news outlet said that his case had been moved to adult court.
Brewer told investigators that his mother was “constantly on his case about cleaning his room,” which is why he repeatedly stabbed her and struck her in the head with a frying pan.
“The suspect advised that he does not like cleaning his room and was tired of the victim (his mom) constantly harping about it,” the report stated.
A probable cause affidavit stated that Brewer confessed to taking his mother’s car keys and money from her purse “so that he could have money once he left the area.”
According to the investigation, he allegedly acknowledged texting a friend to bring a gun so they could “shoot the victim.”
His mother is currently being hospitalized in critical condition. She allegedly told police that “Toby did this.”
