They took a computer in for repair. When they went to retrieve it, they asked why they had not been called about it 3 days earlier as promised. Owner became unreasonably enraged, repeatedly told them to take the computer and get out. When my father asked why he was so angry the owner yelled “get out old man”. My parents are afraid as his behavior was so unreasonable. My Parents are quite elderly and this has really upset my father. Are their Senior Citizen rights organizations that can help? Can law enforcement be notified of the explosive behavior without directly involving my parents, since they are afraid of him and my father is having heart problems.
I have recategorized this question as one for elder law; it may be categorized as possible consumer fraud or a criminal matter. It is not a matter of family law or child custody law as it was marked.

If there are medical bills that are related to the incident you might consult a personal injury attorney to see about making a claim against him as what you describe could be a tort.
