A 77-year-old Dixon woman, reportedly being treated for dementia, will be arraigned in Solano Court Thursday, for assault with a deadly weapon- a comb.
Police arrested her at the Solano Life House Care Facility in Dixon where she was being treated for dementia on July 31, according to CBS news.
They say Glover sent an 83-year-old fellow patient to the hospital after she stabbed them in the face and head with a pointed hand comb.
The Solano County District Attorney's office declined to comment on any case details, stating only that they are charging her with a PC 245, assault with a deadly weapon. Dixon PD have not responded to inquiries as of posting.
CBS reported Glover spent more than 6 days in the Solano County jail, not a mental health facility, stating says both families, Glover’s and the victim’s, have a legal claim to make against the facility because their trust to protect their loved ones was broken.
The Glover's family told CBS news that she can admittedly become combative when she doesn’t take her medication, but never expected her to be hauled away in handcuffs.
The Solano Life House Care Facility stated, "We have no comment," when Patch reached out to them. However, their websites clearly states they capable of caring for patients needing cognitive care, at their flat rate $2,950 per month charge.
"We are a communal living environment which provides all levels of assisted living for seniors, from those who are largely independent but need a helping hand with grooming or medications, to those with some dependency due to physical limitations or mental impairment due to the onset of Alzheimer's disease or other forms of dementia, and those who are completely dependent under hospice care."
Do you think she she should have spent time in jail?
