KENS5 in San Antonio had an article about the tragic and brutal assault on a nursing home resident. Janice Maier was badly beaten by a man who entered her room at the Brookdale Senior Living building. 25-year-old Daniel Villarreal was arrested and charged with serious bodily injury to an elderly person after police say he entered her room around 4am Saturday morning. He was able to enter the facility because the facility left a door open. There is no mention of how Villarreal was able to enter her room or why no one on the staff was able to stop him. Brookdale Senior Living declined to comment when asked how the incident was allowed to happen.
Villarreal told police he was “looking for someone to choke”. Maier was taken to the hospital in poor condition after being kicked in the head approximately 15 times. Villarreal did not know Maier but said he did it because he was angry and frustrated.
Chicago’s WBBM 780 had a story about a resident who was hospitalized after a man punched her in the face at South Shore Nursing & Rehab. She was inside a room when an adult male resident of the home approached her from behind and allegedly began striking her multiple times in the face using his fist and hands. A staff member finally pulled the offender off the woman who suffered significant injuries.
