65-year-old Tan Kim Huah was allegedly attacked last Saturday night by her maid at her apartment in Sungai Ara and was later hospitalised with swollen eyes and bruises on her arms.

The elderly victim, who has dementia, was at home alone with the 35-year-old maid at the time. Her 35-year-old son, Lim Cheng San, found the victim’s injuries the next morning when he visited her and confronted the maid.

He claimed that the maid explained that Tan’s swollen eyes were caused by some ointment that she applied on her eyes.

Lim consequently lodged a report at the Bayan Lepas police station that day. The doctor who treated Tan at a private hospital said that her swollen eyes might have been caused by a hit on the head with a blunt object.

Police have remanded the maid for 14 days to aid investigations and the case has been classified under causing hurt.
