A sexual assault at a nursing home facility in Guymon on Saturday, Feb. 14, brought an immediate reaction from administrators at Cimarron Memorial Hospital and Nursing Home.
According to O.S.B.I. Agent Morgan Wilkinson, a 92-year-old female was assaulted.
“At the time we received the report of the incident, we locked our entire facility down,” said Sharon Cox, hospital administrator.
“Now, we have exits locked so that any visitors must pass by the nurses station. This is a small community, most of us know who everyone is,” Cox added.
“We are in contact with the nursing home administrator where the incident happened and are staying up-to-date on any developments,” Cox continued.
According to a press report filed by Barbara Quigley, Editor of The Guymon Daily Herald, the Guymon Police Department responded to the reported assault at just before 7 a.m. on Feb. 14.
The suspect, as described by employees and the victim, was a Hispanic male, about 27 years of age standing five-feet-six inches tall, with a thick body build and dark short, straight spiked hair. He has dark eyes and a medium complexion.
At the time of the incident he was described as wearing a red sweater type shirt, blue jeans and light brown high-top hiking boots.
