LOS ANGELES (AP) — Authorities say a nursing attendant has been arrested for allegedly sexually assaulting a patient at County-USC Medical Center

The Los Angeles Times reported Thursday that Terence Tekoh was taken into custody on suspicion of sexual penetration with a foreign object. The 25-year-old is being held on $100,000 bail.

Sheriff's officials say the alleged assault occurred Wednesday in an examination room. The victim was waiting for a medical procedure.

Tekoh was employed by a private company that provides medical personnel for the facility. Officials say he was fired after the allegations were reported.
