Shocking footage has emerged of a resident at a Florida retirement home beating an 86-year-old resident with dementia more than 50 times. 

The video was recorded on security cameras at the Good Samaritan Retirement Home in Williston back in October.

The footage, which was published by CNN on Thursday, was handed over to police at the time and is still part of an ongoing investigation related to the now closed assisted living facility.

It shows a 52-year-old resident, who has a traumatic brain injury, knocking the dementia patient to the ground and mercilessly punching him for roughly two minutes.  

The incident unfolded in the common area in a secured unit at the retirement home after the younger man accused the older resident of eating his cupcake. 

No staff members were present in the unit when the incident escalated and by the time they arrived the assault on the older patient had ended. 

Other residents had tried to step in to thwart the attack. 

The 86-year-old resident was treated in hospital for facial bruising and swelling. His attacker was never arrested because of his limited mental capacity.

The retirement home was forced to close down earlier this month and two of its administrators were arrested after a state-led investigation into its care.

The beating incident and the death of a female resident in November were both included in the probe by the Florida Agency for Health Care Administration.

The 72-year-old woman had fallen over in a common area at the facility on November 1 and struck her head.

She was found later that day unresponsive in her bed and died after she was taken to hospital. 

Police arrested Nenita Alfonso Sudeall, one of the facility's administrators, on December 8 and charged her with neglect of the elderly in relation to patient who died.   

Another administrator, Rhaimley Yap Romero, was also arrested on December 11 and charged with neglect of the elderly after the condition of patient he was supposed to be monitoring deteriorated rapidly.

This is the reason why black folks don't like to put their relatives in nursing homes. I once worked in a nursing home where a black lady was brought in and hours later her other family members came to the nursing home to confront the family member that brought her in and an all out brawl was ready to go down in the room. I only included myself in the mix to make sure that our nurse who I liked a lot was not hurt because she was trying to stop it. Few minutes later, they were rolling her out.
