Male Nurse Arrested For Raping 64-Year-Old Nursing Home Patient

An employee at a Bronx nursing home was arrested early this morning after he allegedly raped a 64-year-old patient.

The employee of the Manhattanville Health Care Center, on West 231st Street in Kingsbridge, spotted Nanic Aidasani on top of a disabled 64-year-old female patient. Officials told reporters that staff memebers held Aidasani until police arrived.

The victim is said to have dementia and being unable to talk. Her children are horrified and devastated.

The victim’s 3 children received a call at 4am from the nursing home. The children were in immediate shock.

The NYPD is working on warrant and working on getting this rape kit done. The daughter took her mother to Presbyterian Hospital for a rape kit exam. Doctors told her that because her mother cannot speak, they cannot perform the exam without court approval.

The nursing home’s administrator said, “Manhattanville Health Care Center contacted the police department and the Department of Health to report an alleged sexual abuse complaint. Our residents are our number one priority and we will continue to assist authorities in their ongoing investigation.”

Aidasani, 42, was changed with rape.
