April 16, 2012 14:15

A foreign caretaker from Moldova is in custody for allegedly abusing an elderly woman who was in her care.

Police say the woman slapped the elderly woman and shouted at her during an incident last month.

The woman's relatives lodged a complaint against the worker in recent weeks, but the suspect had left the country. Police put out an arrest warrant for her, and the woman was arrested upon her return to Israel at Ben Gurion International Airport on Saturday.

A court extended her custody until now.
