Oak Park Public Safety says it was a false report by a mother against her son that led to a scary situation on Monday for residents near Rennselaer and Oak Park Blvd.

At about noon on June 22, officers converged on a home on Rensselaer with weapons drawn.

Cooper said his office will be seeking charges against the mother for making a false police report.
