A video camera with a caretaker took care of a patient at a Georgetown facility for people with Alzheimer's, according to an affidavit of capture. Nicholas Francis, 29, of Killeen, was charged with an injury to the elderly, with a third stage felony punishable by up to 10 years in prison.
The incident took place 28 March in the victim's room, a memory care facility at Rocky Hollow Lake House at Road 1650 County 245 in Georgetown, which said the affidavit. He said that a video from a camera in the room showed that Francis was going into the bathroom where he was and that the victim had a disagreement with the man about using the rest room.

The video showed that Francis went over his beat and then left and struck the man with his left hand, saying the affidavit. Then the victim spoke out and Francis closed the resting door, said the affidavit. The video did not show what happened later because the door was closed, the affidavit said.
Her sheriff Williamson County saw bruising on the right side of the victim's head near his neck on the day the attack occurred, said the affidavit. He said the victim was unable to talk about the incident due to a high dementia situation.
Francis was not in custody on Thursday at Williamson County Prison. He no longer works at Rocky Hollow Lake House, an employee said the phone replied Thursday.
