A 63-year-old employee is facing a charge of assault causing bodily harm after Russell County OPP investigated an “altercation” involving a patient at an unidentified Clarence-Rockland long-term care facility May 20.
Police are calling it an allegation of elder abuse.
Someone concerned for the resident’s well-being called police at 9:30 a.m. last Monday to report the incident, which left the resident, whose age wasn’t disclosed, with minor injuries. She did not need to be taken to the hospital.
Suze Marie Colin of Rockland appears in court in L’Orignal June 19.
Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call Russell County OPP at 613-443-4499 or the OPP’s communication centre at 1-888-310-1122.
