That's how I took it as well.

Actually, I imagined the later, as the level of violence seemed more of
a masculine thing than a sick grandmother.
Plus, at 6, I don't believe I would have let my grandmother
person-handle me that way.
I would have been swinging at her wrinkly ass!
Add to that how Pete eluded to his grandmum's male friends in previous
discussions around his abuse.

I have to take him at his word on this stuff.
Too much damage to his own personal family if any of it isn't true.
I would imagine that he's being particularly careful in that regard.
