According to a criminal complaint, on Wednesday, June 7, Brookville Borough Police Department Officer Markle responded to Laurelbrooke Landing, a facility of WRC Senior Services. The director of the facility said that a caregiver-in-training reported abuse of two known Laurelbrooke Landing residents in the memory support unit.

The residents were physically and mentally abused by three staff members on June 6 between 5:00 p.m. and 10:00 p.m., the complaint states.

One of the residents needed to be helped up and dressed for supper. When Hannah and Haley Shirey entered his room, he was kicking and moving around while they attempted to dress him. Haley Shirey allegedly started squeezing his neck and hitting him in the face. Later that night he needed help getting ready for bed, and Haley allegedly said to several people that she would “love to punch him in the face,” the complaint states.

Haley and Hannah went into the room to help him get ready for bed, and Hannah allegedly started choking him. The witness stated that the resident was gasping for air, the complaint indicates.

Hannah also allegedly grabbed “(the resident) by the hair, pulling it. Haley grabbed his leg and bent it toward his head causing pain to him once again,” the complaint states.

A doctor checked the resident and observed a bruise on his forehead and a scratch on his neck, according to the complaint.

A second resident began making noises, squealing – which is usual behavior for him. Hannah Shirey allegedly then went and got a cup of ice and dumped it down the resident’s back, and he began yelling at her for her actions, the complaint states.

According to the complaint, Rebekah Call, a LPN Supervisor, observed the actions of Haley Shirey and Hannah Shirey toward the residents. She is a mandated reporter for this type of abuse, and police indicated that she failed to report the actions of her co-workers, Haley Shirey and Hannah Shirey.
