Aide at Great Neck group home arrested after police say he hit resident in the face

A former aide at a Great Neck group home who police say hit a 71-year-old resident in the face has been arrested and charged for the second time this year.

Nassau County police said Randolph Bien-Aime, 26, of Queens, was working at Adults and Children with Learning and Developmental Disabilities, a nonprofit on Linden Street, when he struck the woman in the face sometime in early June.

Bien-Aime, who no longer works at the facility, was arrested at his home on Wednesday, police said.

He was charged with endangering the welfare of an incompetent person and endangering the welfare of an elderly person, police said. He is scheduled to be arraigned Thursday at First District Court in Hempstead.

On June 10, Bien-Aime was arrested after police said he struck a mentally incompetent 59-year-old man in the face while working as a health aide in Thomaston. Police said Bien-Aime hit the man because he wouldn't comply with directions.

In that case, he was charged with endangering the welfare of an elderly person and endangering the welfare of an incompetent person, court records show. The felony charges are pending.
