A 27-YEAR-old Paraguayan woman was arrested in Palma for allegedly ill-treating a 91-year-old woman she was caring for.
The victim’s children discovered that their mother had a bruise on one eye, apparently caused when the girl threw the TV remote control at her.
They fired her on the spot, but when she supposedly reacted violently and threatened to sue, they called the police. There had been months of abuse, according to the elderly woman who is of sound mind. She had not told her children because the caregiver had later asked for forgiveness.
Several neighbours say they have heard shouts and insults. Meanwhile, six other people have been arrested in Palma for domestic violence.
Among them was an 18-year-old who allegedly threatened his 72-year-old grandmother after she asked him to leave home.
A 54-year-old man was arrested for supposedly beating his wife up at his home in Levante Industrial Park.
The victim suffered a fractured hand and two fingers.
