Elder Abuse Concern

Clinton Public Safety was summoned to the Laurens County Hospital at 4:22 Wednesday morning on a concern of possible elder abuse. An elderly man had bruising that caused concern. In talking with the family members the man lives with, the officer was told that the elderly man could be mean at times and had anger issues. While the officer never asked if the man was being abused, both caregivers reportedly assured the officer several times that he was not being abused. The situation was being documented by Public Safety.
