Ballumbie Court care home worker to stand trial

A care home worker is to stand trial over allegations he assaulted two elderly residents at a Southern Cross home in Dundee.

Robert Myloff allegedly hit 89-year-old Mary Percy over the head with a tray at the Ballumbie Court Care Home.

He is also accused of repeatedly pushing Nora MacDonald, 84, in September 2010, causing her to fall to the ground.

Mr Myloff, 42, denies the charges. He will stand trial in September.

Prosecutors at Dundee Sheriff Court said the alleged attack on Nora MacDonald - between 17 August and 17 September 2010 - was "aggravated by prejudice relating to disability".

Mr Myloff, from Dundee, also denies shouting and swearing aggressively at at Joe McLeod, 69, and Rita Dowie, 89, both residents at the home, placing employees Donna Foley and Wilma Hall in a state of fear and alarm.
