Trenton nursing home employee charged with sex assault

An employee of the Royal Health Gate Nursing and Rehabilitation Facility has been charged with sexually assaulting a 56-year-old patient there on multiple occasions, police said Monday.
Eric Brown, a 34-year-old city resident, was arrested Saturday. He attempted to commit suicide by hanging himself in police lockup Sunday night, but was rescued and taken to Capital Health’s Crisis Unit, police said.
Brown faces four counts of aggravated sex assault for the alleged string of rapes.
“Apparently he did this to the same victim a couple of times,” Sgt. Steve Varn said.
Royal Health Gate is a rehabilitation home located on the 1300 block of Brunswick Pike. Director of nursing Eileen Meyer said yesterday the care facility was investigating Brown’s actions.
