A Mother and Son Bingo Outing Turns Ugly


While playing bingo in the UK, a man attempted to strangle his mother and has since been detained under the Mental Health Act.

The Leeds Crown Court was made aware that the man, Francois Roger Rebate, 43, laughed as his mother, May Rogerson, 60, fought to breathe. While she slept, Rebate tied a rope around her neck.

After the death of Rogerson's husband, her son came to live with her. They had a rocky relationship which was further strained by alcohol. Rebate was given cash to go shopping back in July 2011 but instead of shopping he came home drunk. The two argued but decided to out and play bingo. After being accused of not paying rent to his mother, Rebate became agitated and the arguing once again began.

Rogerson went home and Rebate remained at bingo. Rogerson settled in for bed when her son came into her room tightly tying a rope around her neck. He laughed as his mother struggled to breathe but she managed to break free and call the police.

Rebate told officers that he had had enough of his mother and wanted to “strangle her a bit”.

Rebate felt remorse for what he had done and claims that it was the result of the alcohol. He pleaded guilty to assault and has been assessed by two psychiatrists who had diagnosed him with paranoid schizophrenia.

The judge ordered him to be detained to under the Mental Health Act and receive treatment for his condition.
