The incident appears to have occurred on Friday, May 15. Both the 75-year-old victim and the suspect are patients at the nursing facility in Detroit, WWJNews Radio reports.
The victim was taken to a local hospital where he was treated for non-life threatening injuries. The suspect was taken into custody at the nursing home and transported to the Detroit Detention Center without incident, police said.
Detroit Police James Craig said the investigation is ongoing.
“What our investigation has revealed so far is that the nursing home was unaware of the assault, until they saw the video,” Craig said at a press briefing. “We’re still investigating that aspect of the case, but there is a suspect in custody.”
No one knows anything. Didn’t they notice the bruises??
