A 23-year-old man is in jail Sunday after throwing a vase at his 48-year-old mother.

Police were called to 1050 N. Piatt on Saturday at 1 p.m. Saturday, according to Sgt. John Hoofer, spokesman for the Wichita Police Department.

When police arrived, they found the woman with lacerations to her head and a large gaping wound on her arm.

According to Hoofer, the vase hit the mother in the head and the wound on her arm was caused from shards.
