A 28-year-old home health nurse was arrested and charged with sexually assaulting a 106-year-old bedridden woman.
According to the Pensacola Police Department, Taquita Lashay Watson, 29, was determined to have "used a sexual instrument" on the elderly woman who she was hired to care for last month.
Watson was booked into the Escambia County jail in lieu of $25,000 bond, The Smoking Gun reports.
Watson was described by police as having "no known mental health issues" and whose "mental capacity appeared to be fine." The victim told police that Watson assaulted her with a six-inch sex toy that she carried in her purse along with a jar of Vaseline.
The investigation is continuing as police try "to determine if anyone else may have been victimized."
From The Smoking Gun:
The woman told police that Watson "pulled her pants and diaper down and told her that this 'would make her feel good.'" As Watson allegedly tried to assault her with the sex toy, the victim said she screamed at the caregiver to stop. Watson replied that, "all the old people like it and it makes them feel good," according to the woman's account to police.
The victim said that when she started to bleed from her vagina, Watson cursed at her and said she would "get it in next time" before warning that, "if you tell anyone, I will hurt you." The woman was subsequently given a sexual assault examination which revealed "obvious signs of trauma" to her vagina, cops reported.
