SIKESTON, Mo. - Police arrested a man accused of assaulting his grandmother after becoming angry over $40.

Investigators say Matthew Carmack of Sikeston, Missouri, pushed and choked the 66-year-old woman.

A neighbor came to the victim's aid when she sounded the car alarm to call for help.

The neighbor told police it was an ongoing problem, and that they worked out the car alarm signal ahead of time in case it happened again.

Carmack is charged with 2nd degree domestic assault.
