@ approximately 3:32 PM – Police arrested Shoghik Karapetyan, age 59 of Brooklyn, NY and charged her with neglect of elderly or disabled persons. P.O. Scott Phibbs was patrolling the parking lot of the Flemington Marketplace when he was flagged down by a female.
The female requested assistance with a 93 year-old woman whom she located sitting in the front passenger seat of a vehicle parked in the parking lot there. The vehicle was hot, there were no keys inside of it and the driver could not immediately be located. The Flemington-Raritan First Aid and Rescue Squad was called to evaluate the 93 year-old woman as she had symptoms of dehydration. She was ultimately transported to Hunterdon-Medical Center by the squad. Karapetyan was located as the driver of the vehicle. Police learned that she is a home health aide and the 93 year-old woman was in her care. Karapetyan was processed at police headquarters and released with a pending court date. Investigation and arrest by P.O. Scott Phibbs.
