ARLINGTON, Va. (AP) -- Police have charged a former hospital technician with raping a 37-year-old patient.
Arlington County Police said Monday that 30-year-old Roy Anthony Jones of Washington was working as a CT scan technician at Virginia Hospital Center in Arlington when the alleged attack occurred on Jan. 13.
Police say the victim reported the incident after it occurred. Jones has been denied bail and is being held at the Arlington County jail. A listing for his defense attorney could not be found.
The hospital released a statement saying Jones was suspended immediately after the incident was reported and has subsequently been fired. Police say the hospital cooperated with the investigation.
