A West Chester man was indicted Thursday by a Hamilton County grand jury, accused of raping a 92-year-old, mentally ill Deer Park senior assisted living facility resident.
Samuel Onyenweaku, 22, was indicted for rape, felonious assault and patient abuse, charges that carry a maximum prison sentence of 19½ years.
Onyenweaku worked as a nurse’s aide at Amber Park, in the 3800 block of East Galbraith Road, when he was accused of raping the woman in her bed at the facility on Nov. 24.
A nurse entered the woman’s room and saw that her nightgown was pulled up. The nurse saw men’s clothes on the floor and found Onyenweaku in the room’s private bathroom.
Onyenweaku has been in the Hamilton County Justice Center since his arrest. The woman was initially taken to a hospital but released to Cincinnati Hospice.
