A case was recently closed against a carer accused of tying an elderly woman to a fence in Bnei Brak in August after the Israeli State Attorney’s Office said that “a lack of sufficient evidence” existed.

 

 

Police were alerted to the incident when a passerby noticed the elderly women sitting in her wheelchair with her arm tied to the fence. After taking a picture of the woman and posting it to social media site Facebook, the post quickly became viral, and the police subsequently arrested the woman’s carer.

yq(‘.magnifyPic’+value.id).mouseover(function(){
yq(‘.magnifyPic’+value.id).css({background: “url(/images/articlepiclightbox/enlarge-over.png)”})
});
yq(‘.magnifyPic’+value.id).mouseout(function(){
yq(‘.magnifyPic’+value.id).css({background: “url(/images/articlepiclightbox/enlarge.png)”})
});
})

});

The elderly woman tied to the fence in Bnei Brak. 

 

However, the State Attorney’s Office announced Monday that the carer will not be prosecuted due to a lack of evidence. “The suspect’s version, which claims she had to reach a place that was not wheelchair accessible and so she left the elderly woman alone for—at most—ten minutes and was in continuous eye contact with her, cannot be disproven,” it said in a statement.
