Mauldin police said a Simpsonville man was stealing money from his elderly father, and threatened to hit him outside a bank.

Police said that on Jan. 27, an employee at the bank called police because she was concerned that a customer was being abused by his son, and was being forced to give money to him.

Investigators said that they determined that 50-year-old Henry Manson had forced his 87-year-old father to withdraw money from his account and give it to him. They said Manson also forged checks on his father's account to put money in his own account.

Police said that a witness saw Manson raise his fist at his father and threaten to hit him outside a bank.

Manson was charged with exploitation of a vulnerable adult, forgery and third-degree assault and battery. He was being held in the Greenville County jail on $61,088 bond.
