Gf A caregiver was in jail Wednesday for allegedly beating an 83-year-old Glendale woman with a metal folding chair and nearly killing her, police said.

Luis Cuevas of Glendale was taken into custody Monday on suspicion of attempting to kill the woman, the Glendale News-Press reported, citing police reports. Cuevas had cared for the woman, who was not identified, for five years.

The woman was later released from Glendale Memorial Hospital, where she was treated for bruises, cuts and swelling all over her body, said police spokeswoman Sherri Servillo.

Neighbors called police just after 1:06 a.m. to report hearing Cuevas screaming and throwing objects inside the woman’s home on the 1800 block of Verdugo Knolls Drive.
