A home health aide who allegedly attacked architect I.M. Pei at his New York residence has pleaded guilty to harassment.
Eter Nikolaishvil, 28, “forcefully twisted” the 98-year-old’s arm at his Manhattan townhouse on Dec. 13, 2015, according to court papers.
Prosecutors said Pei and his family were consulted on the plea offer that was made to the former employee. Nikolaishvil agreed to complete eight anger management sessions
Pei “suffered large, round red marks that covered the majority of his right forearm, as well as bruising and lacerations that were bleeding on his right forearm, and substantial pain,” according to Nikolaishvil’s criminal complaint.
The designer is credited with some of the world’s most recognizable structures including pyramid extension at the Louvre in Paris.
