ABERDEEN, Miss. (WCBI)-A nurse’s aid is the victim of a late-night attack in the hallway of a Northeast Mississippi hospital and authorities are trying to figure out how.
Aberdeen Police and Pioneer Medical Center staff are trying to determine how the man got by security and into the hallway in the assisted living area on the lower level of the Aberdeen facility. Police haven’t released any details on the incident or the man arrested. And hospital officials declined to comment until they’d thoroughly evaluated the situation.
But friends of the victim, who is in her 60s, tell WCBI a nurse and the aid came into contact with the man at about 11-30 Thursday night in an employee area. They asked the man to leave and when he refused, the nurse ran to get help. According to friends of the victim, the man dragged the aide to another area and assaulted her. Police arrived quickly and interrupted the assault and arrested the attacker.
