Published 7 hours ago Crime and Public Safety FOX 2 Detroit

DETROIT (FOX 2) - Heartbreaking and disturbing - that is how people describe a video were told was taken inside the Westwood Nursing Center on Detroit's west side.

It shows a 20-year-old patient relentlessly punching an elderly patient. The video is making rounds on social media and we do want to warn you its graphic.

{snip}

In this hard to watch viral video- a Westwood Nursing Center patient throws punch after punch while a helpless elderly patient covers his head.

{snip}

Detroit police then arrested the 20-year-old while the elderly man went to a hospital for non-life threatening injuries. Ann Arbor police say when they called the nursing home and staff there already knew about it.

{snip}

Detroit police believe the video was taken on May 15th while nursing homes remain on lockdown because of COVID-19 concerns.

4. I don't know. It looks as if the camera were carefully hidden behind the paper towels.

Someone seems to have suspected something. Family member? Someone on the staff?

11. I hope there was good intent, but if this was a 'trophy' footage or taken because this ...

was not the first time, I hope the kid gets what he deserves. Whatever it is.

19. Looks like the trophe footage.

It is still during the first part. Then it shakes when he moves the victim and is repositioning it.

21. The abuser seems to be handling the camera at the end, as though he wants to be seen

on it, so maybe he is taping it himself.

5. Statement from the nursing home:

The nursing home and its administrators are still gathering information, conducting their own investigation, and cooperating fully with the police in their own investigation. We will issue another statement once we have gathered more facts regarding the incident. One thing we want to make clear, on the record, is that this incident did not involve a nurse or any other employee of the nursing home. The individuals involved were residents. The attacker in the video was turned over to the police around 11:30 a.m. this morning by the staff at the nursing home. He is not a long-term resident of Westwood, but he was recently admitted for recovery and rehabilitation purposes on a temporary stay. Westwood has been cooperating with the police and will continue to do so. The safety, health, and well-being of our residents remains a top priority of Westwood. We will continue to monitor the situation.

Until we receive more information, we will not be able to comment further on the matter at this time.

7. Seems bizarre that apparently physically able 20 year old

was placed in a nursing home to begin with.

9. Perhaps a step down care placement following a hospital stay

But yes, bizarre and concerning the lack of staff presence.

10. Well it clearly was a wrong place for a 20 year old to be placed among

elderly. I am assuming 20 year old has mental issues.

13. One of our local nursing homes has a very bad reputation because it takes

patients in for drug rehab. I have a friend who is a police officer and he says they spend a lot of time there because the rehab patients are visited by their dealers, they fight among themselves all the time and steal from each other, attack the staff, and also attack the other (older) residents. You can imagine the staff turnover.

8. Those who beat the elderly are no better than rabid animals and deserve the same fate

This is so infuriating to see the elderly being preyed upon.

12. Please edit to show statistics of recent increase in assaults on seniors.

These assaults are happening in a variety of places. Seniors have been made targets of hate.

25. Cowardly shitstain should be charged w/hate crime.

We need much stronger laws to protect senior citizens.

When I was growing up (gen-x'er) even the gangbanger types considered it weak/cowardly to harm the elderly.

Anyone who did something like this would've probably been beaten to a pulp.
