A 44-year-old man is being accused of sexually assaulting a sedated patient at a hospital in Fairfield County, according to police.
The investigation began after the incident on Saturday, Aug. 29 when a male patient, Rodney Daniels, of Stamford, was at Norwalk Hospital because of PCP usage.
At around 3:30 a.m. that day, Daniels entered the treatment room of the female patient who was given a sedative by hospital staff during treatment, Norwalk PD Lt. Jared Zwickler said.
Daniels sexually assaulted the victim in the treatment room and was found by hospital staff lying next to the victim, Zwickler said.
During the course of their investigation, detectives discovered Daniels has an extensive criminal history and is currently on parole, police said.
Daniels was charged with first-degree sexual assault and providing a false statement.
He's being held on $1,000,000 bond.
