Detroit Police made an arrest Thursday afternoon after a video circulated Twitter which appeared to show a nursing home employee violently assaulting one of their residents.
20-year-old Jadon Hayden is currently being held as part of an investigation into an assault of an elderly male at the Westwood Nursing Center located on the city’s northwest side.
In a video uploaded to a Twitter account that appears to be owned by Mr. Hayden, you can observe Mr. Hayden strike the elderly gentlemen multiple times in the head and face.
The victim’s identity has not been released by the nursing home; he has only been identified as 75 years old. According to Westwood Nursing Center, the victim was transported to a local medical center and is currently being treated for non-life-threatening injuries.
The video posted is very disturbing therefore I have made the decision not to link the original video to this article.
The Detroit Police Department is still investigating and currently has no further comment.
