A woman, claiming to be a physical therapist intern, is accused of swindling $65,000 from an elderly, dementia-addled man.
Joanne Ayoube, 30, was arrested after she tried to get the 95-year-old victim to change his death benefits at a financial institution, according to the Fort Bend County District Attorney’s Office.
She is now charged with theft from an elderly person and is being held at Harris County Jail without bond.
Ayoube was posing as an intern at HealthSouth Sugar Land Rehabilitation Hospital when she met the victim, a district attorney’s office spokeswoman said. She did not have a PT license.
