Man charged with sexually assaulting nursing home resident

COVENTRY, R.I. (AP) — Police say a man who lives at a Rhode Island nursing home has been charged with sexually assaulting an 80-year-old female resident.

Seventy-four-year-old Francis Kinsey was arrested Saturday on a first-degree sexual assault charge. Coventry police say an employee reported witnessing him assault the woman.

Police say Kinsey was arrested on a first-degree molestation charge in Charlestown in 2012. The case has not been resolved.

Kinsey remains held and will be arraigned later this week in Kent County Superior Court. Court records don’t list an attorney for him.
