Assisted Living Center Employee Charged with Attempted Rape of a Mentally Challenged Woman

An employee of an assisted living facility has been charged with trying to rape a mentally handicapped resident. A judge set bond at $25,000 on charges of criminal sexual assault for 54-year-old nursing home worker. The Captain of the Department of Public Safety said officials at the facility have cooperated fully with law enforcement.

Another of the facility's employees told investigators that she could not find the male employee. According to the police report, around 3 a.m. she went to look for him. When she entered the room of a female patient, she saw the male employee on the patient's bed while the patient was in bed. According to the report, the employee had his pants down at the time. When she asked the man what he was doing, he told her to shut the door.

She found another employee and went back to the room. The two employees found the man straightening out his clothes.
Investigators tried communicating with the victim, but due to her severe mental and physical handicaps, they were unable to gain helpful information. The investigation is ongoing. For more, read the story.
