Suspect arraigned in attempted rape of Bronx nursing home patient
A Bronx nursing home employee is accused of attempting to rape a 64-year-old patient who cannot communicate, officials said.
Nurse Nanic Aidasani, 42, was arraigned Wednesday after police said he tried to rape the Manhattanville Health Care Center patient while she was sleeping sometime overnight into Tuesday.
Aidasani was allegedly found on top of the patient, who suffers for global aphasia and dementia, “moving his body in a back and forth motion,” according to the criminal complaint.
His bail was set at $20,000 cash or bond. Aidasani’s next court appearance is scheduled for Friday, according to the Bronx District Attorney’s Office.
Aidasani’s attorney did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
