A woman is accused of abusing a 93-year-old dementia patient at an assisted living facility. The 43-year-old employee of the assisted living facility was charged with simple assault after she pinched, hit and kicked the elderly resident June 10, according to court documents in the case.

According to police, the employee pinched the patient who had pinched her, slapped the woman when she tried to bite, and then responded to a kick with three kicks to the patient's shin. Police said the employee has admitted to the accusations and stated that when "someone hits you, you hit them back." She also admitted that she knew it was not the right thing to do, police said.
