Foreign caregiver suspected of attacking elderly man

Police announced that there was enough evidence to indict a caregiver, a 34-year-old Indian citizen, on suspicion of beating and assaulting an elderly man of 84, a resident of Rishon Letzion, in his care.

The daughter of the elderly man said that she had seen signs of violence on her father's body, checked the security cameras at home and noticed that the temporary caregiver whom she had hired to take care of her father attacked him on several different occasions. After the daughter confronted the caregiver, he escaped.

The suspect was spotted by police at the beginning of the month treating the elderly in Jerusalem and was arrested for questioning.
