A female home health aide to 98-year-old Pritzker Prize winning architect I.M. Pei has been charged with assaulting him inside his New York City home.
Pei told police that Eter Nikolaishvili, 28, grabbed his right forearm and forcefully twisted it Dec. 13. Authorities say Pei’s arm was bruised and bleeding after the attack.
NYPD officers investigated for two weeks before arresting the aide who was arraigned in Manhattan Criminal Court on a charge of felony assault. She was released without bail.
Pei’s designs include the glass and steel pyramid at the Louvre in Paris.
