Man admits kicking 102-year-old woman at mom’s nursing home

NEW CASTLE, Pa. (AP) – A Pennsylvania man has admitted kicking a 102-year-old woman in the shin at his mother’s nursing home and complained that she kept following them.

The Sharon Herald reports that 66-year-old Michael Pavelek, of Fairview Township, pleaded guilty to harassment and was fined $150 plus court costs last week.

Neshannock Township police say the altercation happened Oct. 18 at the Jameson Care Nursing Home.

Police say Pavelek was walking his mother down the hall and became annoyed when the 102-year-old woman began trailing them. They say Pavelek kicked the woman’s shin, cutting her, then kicked her again as the nurse tried to pull him away.

Police say when the nurse told Pavelek he could hurt the woman, he replied, “Good.”
