HOUSTON — It’s nothing short of disturbing; an elderly woman being physically and verbally abused by the person paid to look after her while she sits in the living room of her Memorial Village home. And all because the victim was trying to feed her pet table food.

Brenda Floyd is wanted for assaulting a disabled-elderly person.

Officers are still searching for the patient’s alleged attacker, Brenda Floyd.

The Memorial Village Police Department said video taken around 8 p.m. on New Year’s Day at the patient’s house in the 800 block of Oak Valley Drive shows Floyd assaulting the disabled woman — smacking her multiple times across her body while insulting her with profanities.

Floyd is charged with assault of an elderly/disabled person.

“I told you to stop feeding that dog that human food,” Floyd says in the video before slapping the patient in the back of the head. “Do you have another $4,000 to put that dog back in the hospital? Huh?”

The video shows Floyd slapping her again as the woman struggles to crouch down and pick up the scraps from the floor.

“Get that s— up from there,” Floyd says in the video. “Get your a– up and go to f—-ing bed. Go to bed, d—-t! B—-, I told you to stop giving that dog human food.”

The patient responds — mumbling — telling the woman she didn’t do it, but Floyd says she doesn’t believe her.

Floyd guides the woman to her walker, striking and insulting the patient continuously, as they step into the next room.

Care.com, the website where Floyd’s services are listed, released the following statement:
