Press Release - Elder Abuse Arrest

Below is a press release from Milton Police Lieutenant John Conger about an elder abuse arrest.

On May 23, 2013 at approximately 11:00 a.m. our agency arrested Syren Bolderdene on a felony charge of Abuse Of An Individual At Risk. Mr. Bolderdene is 35 years old, and has a permanent Chicago address.

Mr. Bolderdene was privately contracted to be a live-in caretaker for a 76 year old Milton man.

On May 21st Milton EMS was dispatched to the victim’s address at the request of Bolderdene, as the victim had reportedly fallen, and Bolderdene was unable to get him upright. The victim was then transported to Mercy hospital for treatment of injuries and other ailments that were the result of his living conditions.

Our initial investigation has revealed suspicious fractures, bruising and scratches upon the victim. Furthermore, it is believed that the victim was left in a soiled diaper and bedclothes for a time period that is believed to be, at a minimum, in excess of 24 hours, causing him to be saturated in his own urine and feces.

Mr. Bolderdene was transported to and held at the Rock County Jail. He will appear tomorrow in Rock County Circuit Court.

NOTE: Pursuant to the directive of the Wisconsin Supreme Court, as found in Supreme Court rule 20:3.6, trial publicity, you are advised that a charge is merely an accusation and that a defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
