News4Jax.com had a story and JacksonvilleNews.com also ran a story about a nursing home employee who worked for Regents Park Nursing Home charged with sexual assault on a vulnerable elderly resident. Anthony Njorge was arrested on two counts of sexual battery on an elderly resident who was not only mentally impaired but also physically helpless. This guy needs to go to jail for a long time. Nursing homes are places family members trust to keep their loved ones safe and cared for properly.
According to the arrest report, the incident happened around 3:40 a.m. Sunday when another employee told officers she heard noises coming from the victim’s room. The witness later told police in the report she saw Njorge in the victim’s room cleaning up, then came out of the room with a clear plastic bag he threw into the disposal room. A witness told Jacksonville police she heard something from one of the rooms, and when she went in she saw nurse Njorge assaulting the resident. The witness told police she reached for her cell phone, but the man tried to stop her. Police are withholding information both because of the nature of the crime and the investigation.
