Employee at group home for disabled allegedly assaulted resident in fight over cheeseburger

RACINE COUNTY, Wis. (CBS 58) -- An employee at a group for disabled residents has been arrested after police say she assaulted a resident in May.

Canei Brown, 19, is facing charges of Intentionally Abusing Patients Causing Bodily Harm and Disorderly Conduct.

According to the criminal complaint, officers were dispatched to the group home located in the 1600 block of Erie Street in reference to an assault on May 30.

Officers spoke with the supervisor who said that he noticed a resident had a black eye and some small lacerations around the same eye and on his nose. The supervisor said that the resident received the injuries sometime overnight. Brown was the only third shift employee working when the resident was injured, the supervisor said.

Police spoke with the resident who said that he ate a hamburger that must have been Brown's hamburger because she got mad and "punched me a lot of times." The resident also said, "Canei she whooped my a**; she's very strong; over a cheeseburger."
