MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

Memphis police arrested and charged 29-year-old Jeremiah Wynn for beating his grandmother.

Police say Wynn got into a fight with his family for hiding and stealing his grandmother's kitchen knives.

The 91-year-old woman told police Wynn pushed and punched her in the arm several times.

"He cussed me," Julia Rogers told WMC Action News 5. "He called me everything but a child of God."

Rogers is a mother of 20, and she's a grandmother and great-grandmother of nearly 100.

She takes care of many of those grandchildren during the day, but she ended up bruised when one of her grandchildren attacked her.

"He's dirty. He's like a rattlesnake," Rogers said of Wynn.

When Wynn's mother stepped between her son and mother, Wynn refused to stop. Rogers says he attacked his mother and continued on to get back at her.

Plus, Wynn is a registered sex offender.

"He's so low down and so devious ... baby, he's a dirty black sucker," Rogers said.

Wynn's problems with the law include aggravated assault, burglary of a motor vehicle, trespassing, and a violation of the sex offender registry.

His family says he's burned down their barn, slit their cars tires, and even stolen from them.

Rogers says her grandson has no other place to live and stays with the family when he's in desperate need.

Wynn remains in jail on a $2,500 bond.

His grandmother says if he returns to the house, she plans on finding a new, safe place to live .
