Man Arrested After Sexually Assaulting A 64-Year-Old Nursing Home Resident

A male nurse was arrested this morning for sexually assaulting a patient suffering from Alzheimer’s. It happened early this morning, when staff saw the nurse on her bed, raping her. She was not able to fight back. The man was held by staff until police arrived.

Her daughter had this to say just after the incident, "It's just heartbreaking, it's horrible that this is happening to my mother... She was at the nursing home because my brother and I thought it was a safe haven for her, a safe place for her, that she would be protected, but she wasn't protected, she was assaulted."
