Man Arrested for Bashing in 82-Year-Old's Head With Hammer

View Comments ()




    Cops arrested a man they've been seeking for months in connection with the brutal assault of an elderly man in Queens.

    Back in February, a 49-year-old man smashed an 82-year-old man's head in with a hammer during an argument. The two knew each other, police said at the time.

    Cops now believe they have the suspect in custody.

    Police arrested Jaime Olivera, of Queens, and charged him with one count of assault. Authorities say Olivera beat up the elderly man so badly that the latter needed 100 stitches in his head when he was rushed to the hospital after the alleged attack.
