A care facility employee is accused of sexually assaulting a resident where he worked, the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Office said.Ioan Sandor, 62, was booked into the Sacramento County Main Jail on one count of penetration by a foreign object by means of force or fear , the sheriff’s office said. Sandor posted his $250,000 bail the same day he was arrested, which was Friday.The victim was a dependent woman, sheriff’s office spokesperson Lt. Rod Grassman said. Officials did not name the care facility. Lt. Grassmann told KCRA 3 the alleged assault happened sometime last week, and the woman took quick action.”The victim in that assault was able to report that to the care facility management, who then transported that person to the hospital, where an evidentiary exam could take place,” Grassmann said. “We were able to then corroborate the evidence there with the suspect that we ultimately arrested.” The sheriff’s office called the alleged incident a “crime of opportunity,” given that Sandor had access to the woman as an employee of the care facility. Grassmann said it was unimaginable for something like this to occur.”This is a shocking breach of trust. When a family member puts another family member in a care facility that they’re going to be cared for, they don’t expect this to happen,” Grassmann said. The sheriff’s office is encouraging anyone to contact the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Office Sexual and Elder Abuse Bureau at 916-874-5070 or Sacramento Valley Crime Stoppers at 916 -443-HELP.”Sexual assault is a domestic crime,” Grassmann said. “Few of these assaults have just one victim.”Sandor is expected to appear in court Tuesday at 3 pm, the sheriff’s office said.
