Detroit nursing home patient, 20, who filmed himself beating elderly residents as they lay defenseless in their beds and then posted videos online is charged with assault

A 20-year-old Detroit nursing home patient was charged on Sunday with beating his 75-year-old roommate and another man in assaults that he allegedly recorded on his cellphone and posted on social media - prompting a reaction from President Trump.
Jaden T. Hayden of Ypsilanti was charged with two counts of assault, larceny and two counts of stealing a financial transaction device, the Wayne County Prosecutor's Office said. 
It was not clear whether he has an attorney who can comment on his behalf.
Hayden was sharing a room with Norman Bledsoe at the Westwood Nursing Center in Detroit when authorities allege that he set up a cellphone and recorded himself beating the older man.

Hayden is also alleged to have assaulted another resident at the facility as they lay defenseless in their bed.
Hayden told nursing home staff who found Bledsoe bleeding on May 15 that the old man had fallen out of bed, prosecutors said. 
Bledsoe had head injuries and was taken to a hospital for treatment.

Hayden posted video of the attack on social media, prosecutors said, and also stole Bledsoe´s credit cards. 
He was arrested on Thursday after the video was brought to the attention of police.
An attorney for the nursing home told WJXK-TV that staff members were not aware of the attack until they saw the video. 
Hayden was not a long-term resident of the nursing home, the attorney said.
President Trump on Thursday tweeted in disbelief after the disturbing videos surfaced online.
'Is this even possible to believe? Can this be for real? Where is this nursing home, how is the victim doing?' the president tweeted later that same evening. 
In one video, which seems to have been filmed by the abuser, the man calmly faces the camera.
He then appears to punch an elderly man in the face multiple times.
The victim tries in vain to shield his head from the rain of punches and tries to get up. 
The abuser then grabs him by the neck and pulls him off the bed.

The aggressor is then heard saying: 'This b**ch-a** n**r wouldn't get off my bed.'
A separate horrific video was also posted on social media appearing to show the same man abusing another elderly victim. 
In the footage the suspect holds his fist in front of the camera and then launches the attack on the elderly victim who is lying in bed. 
Detroit Police Department confirmed Thursday afternoon they had arrested someone over the incident which they said took place at a 'senior home'. 
'Thank you to everyone for your assistance in bringing the senior home incident to our attention,' the police department said in a tweet. 
'The Detroit Police Department is investigating the situation, and an arrest has been made. Thank you again.'
Comments on social media initially said the incident took place at a psychiatric hospital but both the hospital and the Michigan Department of Health & Human Services have denied this.  
'A social media post was saying that this occurred at one our department's state psychiatric hospitals, but that was incorrect,' Michigan Department of Health & Human Services told DailyMail.com over email.
