A convicted sex offender has been arrested and charged with sexually assaulting an 80-year-old woman in a nursing home.
The Greene County Sheriffs Department said 49-year-old Tommy Brock of Madison County was arrested Thursday and charged with a misdemeanor count of sexual assault.
Officials said staff at the Evergreene Nursing Home in Stanardsville noticed a man in a room with a female resident under suspicious circumstances Monday. A staff member removed the woman from the room, and police are unsure how seriously she may have been assaulted.
Brock was convicted of forcible sodomy in Albemarle County in 1983.
There is no word on when the case will go to trial.
