Report: Woman Raped in Hospital While Recovering from Serious Brain Injury

It has been reported, by police, that a female patient whom is recovering from a severe brain injury was raped in a New York City hospital.

The crime was discovered by a nurse. She was making her rounds and when she went to check on the woman she found Keith Nembhard sexually assaulting the 32yr-old.

Police were notified about this crime earlier this month.

The attacker, 37, apparently knew the victim. He was arrested and charged with rape in the second degree.

Doctors had informed the police that the woman’s injuries were so severe, she had no capability to consent to sexual intercourse.

Talk about a horrific crime! But this isn’t the first shocking incident that has happened in the hospital.

Back in June a former doctor killed one and injured 6 former co-workers.

Via the Daily Mail: Dr Henry Bello, a family physician, opened fire at the Bronx Lebanon Hospital where he used to work at about 2.45pm on Friday June 30.

The 45-year-old gunman was hiding a high-powered assault rifle under his white medical coat and had his ID card on him when he started the shooting spree on the 16th and 17th floors of the hospital, police sources say.

Police Commissioner James O’Neill confirmed that the shooter died of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound inside the building.

The shooter had tried to set himself on fire prior to fatally shooting himself. He staggered, bleeding, into a hallway where he collapsed and died with the rifle at his side.

The body of the female victim, believed to be a doctor, was found next to the shooter on the 17th floor. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

Five of the victims were seriously injured in the shooting rampage and one victim is being treated for a gunshot wound to their leg. 

If you’re in the area… you might want to avoid this hospital.
