BRONX, NY — The NYPD has arrested Keith Nembhard, 37, for raping a 32-year-old stroke victim in her bed at Bronx-Lebanon Hospital.
A nurse reportedly walked in on Bronx resident Nembhard in the process of committing the assault. The patient is said to have suffered a brain injury that rendered her incapable of giving consent to any manner of sex act.
Hospital staff called the cops and held Nembhard until officers took him into custody.
Nembhard is believed to know the victim. He has been charged with second-degree rape.
The alleged rape is the second serious criminal incident to occur in 2017 at Bronx-Lebanon Hospital. In June, Dr. Henry Bello, a disgruntled former employee, stormed the hospital and gunned down six staffers, one of whom died. Bello then turned the gun on himself and committed suicide.
