DOTHAN, Ala. (TCD) -- A 37-year-old man was arrested and charged after his elderly relative was found "wearing nothing but an adult diaper asking for help."
Dothan Police said they were informed about a possible elder abuse and neglect case on the 500 block of South Saint Andrews Street. Police went to the home and found the woman "crawling around inside." She reportedly had open wounds and "various other medical conditions" that were left untreated.
According to police, the elderly female victim was transported to a hospital for treatment for her injuries. There is a possibility she will have to undergo surgery for the open wounds.
The victim’s relative and primary caregiver, Jason Proctor, was arrested and charged with one count of elder abuse and neglect. Proctor was booked into the Houston County Jail, where he remains without bond.
