BOLIVAR, N.Y. (WIVB) – State Police say a couple from Allegany County physically and verbally abused an elderly woman in the Village of Bolivar.
Last week, the 65-year-old victim called troopers to report the abuse. She told officers that over the last three months, her nephew and his girlfriend routinely slapped, grabbed, punched and squeezed her.
Troopers arrested Donald Patterson Jr., 44, and Violet Evans, 42, both of Bolivar and charged each with felony second degree assault. They are due back in court at a later date.
The victim was taken to a nearby shelter.
