Woman Jailed On Charges She Abused An Elderly Female Relative

LEVITTOWN, Pennsylvania — An eastern Pennsylvania woman has been jailed on charges she abused an elderly female relative by poking the woman in the eyes and squeezing the woman so hard around the rib cage that she was bruised and unable to move for days.

Online court records don’t list an attorney for 49-year-old Patricia Ann Fitzgerald, of Falls Township, Bucks County.

The Bucks County Courier-Times reports the incident happened July 19, but Fitzgerald wasn’t arraigned on aggravated assault and other charges until Tuesday, because police had to investigate the older woman’s claims.

Police say the alleged victim waited three days to report the attack because she couldn’t move due to the injuries, which left her with severe bruises on her ribs, scratches on her back, and severely swollen eyes.
