Laurens NHC Employee Accused Of Assaulting A Vulnerable Adult

On 07/17/2022 the Laurens Police Department was made aware of an assault on a 79-year-old vulnerable adult at NHC of Laurens by an employee at that location. #LPD Detectives immediately launched an investigation and due to the serious nature of the offense, detectives called for assistance from the Attorney General’s Office for this investigation.


As a result of that investigation, an arrest has been made in this case.  On 08/02/2022 Ursula Marie Davis of Clinton has been arrested and charged with alleged Abuse of a Vulnerable Adult (43-35-0085B). Ms. Davis was booked into the Johnson Detention Center late afternoon on this date. The victim, who is in good condition, has been removed from NHC and is currently in the care of family members.


Be assured that your Laurens Police Department aggressively and thoroughly investigates every case that we receive. They believe however, that cases such as this, where a vulnerable person who cannot fend for themselves and is in the care of others is the victim of an assault, we will leave no stone unturned to assure that the victim is served and that the perpetrator of an offense as egregious as this, is prosecuted to the full extent. Although an arrest has been made, this case is ongoing and is still an active investigation.
