(York) -- Authorities say the son of York city's mayor punched her in the face, knocking her to the ground, and kicked her several times in her back, head and face before a bystander intervened. 

Published reports say 30-year-old Brandon Anderson attacked York Mayor Kim Bracey last Saturday at her campaign headquarters.

Authorities say he was arrested at the scene and charged with simple assault, a misdemeanor.

Bracey released a statement Friday night saying her son is battling an opioid addiction.

She said no family is immune from the drug epidemic and ``we must do everything in our power to solve it.''

The two-term mayor is seeking re-election.
