A nurse has been charged with the sexual assault of a patient with dementia at the New York nursing home where he works. ABC7 New York reports that 42-year-old Nanic Aidasani kept his mouth shut as police escorted him out of the Bronx Special Victim's Unit in handcuffs.

The Yonkers man is accused of raping a 64-year-old resident at the Manhattanville Health Care Center in the Kingsbridge section of the Bronx.

Another worker reportedly caught the suspect on top of the alleged victim, who has a severe case of dementia. She can't talk, her family tells ABC7, making it impossible for her to explain what exactly happened.
