A 15-year-old Brantford male assaulted his mother because she took his iPad from him, police say.

The son became upset with his mother when she took away his iPad. He became "verbally aggressive" and then started punching and shoving her, police say.

The Brantford police was called at 7:55 p.m. Monday and they arrested the teen. He was charged with assault and is awaiting a bail hearing Tuesday morning.

His mother did not suffer any physical injuries and did not need any medical attention.
