HANOVER — Dilshod Umarkhanov, 60, Parsippany, was arrested and charged with aggravated sexual contact after allegedly abusing a man who suffers from dementia and for whom he cared as an aide Thursday, May 11.
Hanover Township Police Officer Robert Miele arrested Umarkhanov after the victim’s daughter caught Umarkhanov on camera, striking the victim in his genitals and face.
The victim’s daughter told Officer Miele that her father is non-verbal because of dementia and has two home health aides who help him throughout the day and night. She told Miele that her father had recently been pointing to his groin and face area but didn’t understand what he was trying to tell her. It appeared as if he was in pain, but no bruises or cuts were observed.
The victim’s daughter told Officer Miele that she had received a phone call from the recently hired aide who told her that on Tuesday, May 9, he heard the victim yelling from another room, but when he got to the room, he didn’t witness anything.
This aide again heard screaming and witnessed Umarkhanov, hired four months ago, pushing and punching the victim while restraining him on Wednesday, May 10.
The victim’s daughter, after hearing this, purchased a camera and hid it in the house. She then provided police with the video, which showed Umarkhanov striking the victim in his genitals and face.
Miele responded to the victim’s residence and arrested Umarkhanov as he arrived for work. Umarhkhanov was charged with aggravated sexual contact, endangering an injured victim, and simple assault.
Umarkhanov was transported to the Morris County Correctional Facility pending his court date.
