POWDER SPRINGS, Ga. -

Four people face charges in the alleged abuse of a man at a residential care home in Powder Springs.

Cobb County investigators say the employees and owners of Top of the Line residential care home restrained and beat the only resident who lived at the house.

According to criminal warrants, in January, owner Osvaldo Hernandez struck the victim with an aluminum baseball bat.
    
The warrant also alleges Hernandez forced him to drink a Coke with his hands behind his back until the victim felt he was going to choke.

Hernandez is charged with aggravated assault, simple battery and false imprisonment.

Police charged employee Stephen Patrick Caldwell with battery and false imprisonment after investigators say he punched the victim in the head and face, giving the man black eyes.  

According to court documents,  the alleged abuse took place at two locations.

Edith Mae Page, the founder of Top of the Line Residential Care, says there's much more to the story and says she has proof and lengthy documentation. But because she's under counsel, she says she can't tell her side of the story.

Page says she's been a nurse for 25 years and plans to continue serving the mentally challenged.

Page and another employee, John Mitchell, are charged with false imprisonment.

Police allege they tied the victim's hands and feet and restrained him to his bed so he couldn't get up until the next morning.
    
All four people facing charges have bonded out of the Cobb County Jail.
