A 15-year-old Colorado Springs boy has been arrested for allegedly assaulting his mother after she discovered his stash of marijuana.

Police say the boy hit, kicked and choked the woman at their home Sunday afternoon until she lost consciousness. Family members took her to Memorial Hospital, where she was treated and later released.

Officers arrested the boy on suspicion of attempted second-degree murder at his home on Dream Weaver Drive. He was taken to the Spring Creek Detention Center.

No names were released.
