Fellow Patient Charged in NY Nursing Home Rape

 "A 78-year-old woman was beaten and raped in her bed by a fellow patient at a Brooklyn nursing home, the police said yesterday.
The police arrested Samuel Irving, 43, early yesterday and charged with rape and assault in the Friday night attack. Mr. Irving, a double amputee, was homeless before getting a room at the nursing home, Greenpark Care Center at 140 Edwards Street in Fort Greene, and lived down the hall from the victim, an administrator at the home said.
When a nurse doing her rounds passed the victim's room and turned a corner about 8:30 p.m. on Friday, the suspect rolled his wheelchair into the room and closed the door, the administrator, Paul Parawan, said yesterday. When the nurse noticed the door closed three or four minutes later -- it is supposed to be open at all times -- she opened it and saw Mr. Irving on top of the victim, slapping her, Mr. Parawan said."Fellow Patient Charged in Nursing Home Rape - New York Times:
