ELLICOTT CITY, Md. (WJZ) — A Howard County caregiver is charged with abusing a 93-year-old Alzheimer’s patient.
Christina Renee Randall, 26, is charged with second-degree assault and abuse of a vulnerable adult.
Family members of the 93-year-old victim installed a camera in his room at Lighthouse Senior Living in Ellicott City after becoming concerned for his well-being.
After observing what appeared to be abuse on the video, they turned the footage over to police.
Detectives reviewed the video and saw a woman, later identified as Randall, pushing and striking the victim. Investigators learned that the man had bruising on his torso and arm.
Randall was arrested at her home without incident. She posted $7,500 bail and was released.
