Care home worker denies hitting 89-year-old resident over head with tray

A care home worker is to stand trial over allegations that he assaulted two elderly residents.

Robert Myloff is alleged to have hit 89-year-old Mary Percy over the head with a tray some time between August 17 and September 17 last year at the Ballumbie Care Home in Dundee.

Myloff is also accused of repeatedly pushing 84-year-old Nora McDonald on September 17 last year, causing her to fall to the ground to her injury.

A third charge alleges that on the same date he shouted and swore aggressively 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.

Myloff, 42, of Huntly Road, Dundee, did not appear at Dundee Sheriff Court when the case called on Friday

Fiscal depute Arthur Whelan said Myloff had sent a letter pleading not guilty to the charges.

Sheriff Derek Pyle ordered Myloff to stand trial over the charges in June.
