Renowned 98-year-old architect I.M. Pei was allegedly attacked earlier this month by a home health aide.

The aide, Eter Nikolaishvili, grabbed Pei’s arm at His Sutton Place home after he threatened to call the cops on her for “doing something bad,” according to the New York Police Department.

The architect was rushed to a hospital at 4 a.m. and treated for “bleeding lacerations and bruising” on his forearm.

Pei called police, who investigated for weeks before arresting the aide on Tuesday. Nikolaishvili told another aide she’d grabbed Pei to prevent him from falling. She was arraigned the same day and released without bail, the New York Post reported.

Pei’s firm, Pei Partnership Architects, has designed massive, high-style projects all over the world, including New York projects such as the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center and Six Sigma’s condo building at 435 West 19th Street. [NYP]Ariel Stulberg
