A carer has been charged with attempted murder following an attack on a 90-year-old grandmother in Yiewsley.
Abosede Adeyinka appeared in custody at Uxbridge Magistrates’ Court on Monday (May 1) and told she would be remanded in custody before her next court appearance on May 30, at the Old Bailey.
The victim, who is said to be in a stable but critical condition in hospital, was attacked at her home on Thursday (April 27) in Lilac Place, at around 8pm.
Adeyinka, 52 and from Hayman Crescent in Hayes , was charged on Saturday (April 29).
The victim suffered a stab wound to her neck and head injuries during the attack, which shocked the community.
She said she was “heartbroken” to hear of the attack and said: “No-one deserves this. Elderly people are treasures of the community and should be treated with respect.
“So if we can all, as a community and out of respect to the 90-year-old, raise some money for her.”
