No bail for a 25-year-old assistant caregiver who has been held for the sexual assault of a bedridden 82-year-old woman.

Akeem Raymond, of Upper Laventille Road, Laventille, appeared before Port-of-Spain Magistrate Adia Mohammed on Tuesday charged with sexually assaulting the woman around 6 pm on Saturday.

He was not called upon to plead to the charge as it was laid indictably.

Besson Street police arrested Raymond at the woman's home after one of her relatives allegedly caught him in the process of assaulting her.

The woman has been suffering from Alzheimer's as well as Parkinson's disease.

He will re-appear in court on October 10th.
