A 25-year-old Westchester County man who allegedly attempted to kill his elderly mother has been arraigned on charges of attempted murder.

Daniel Flores Arteaga, of New Rochelle, was arraigned on Wednesday, March 18, for allegedly attempting to kill his mother on Tuesday, March 17, said Westchester County District Attorney Anthony A. Scarpino, Jr. 

New Rochelle Police found the injured woman after responding to a home on Second Street for a call of a son attacking his mother, said the DA's Office.

When police arrived, they found Flores Arteaga, at the scene, and his badly injured mother unconscious on the floor. 

Police believe Arteaga strangled his mother until she was unconscious, the DA's Office said.
