Pervert Poses As Male Nurse
A PERVERT masquerading as a male nurse tried to
intimately examine a woman in hospital just hours
after she had given birth yesterday.
The man, who had a squeaky feminine sounding voice,
entered the ward at Randwick's Royal Hospital for
Women about 6.30am (AEDT).
He tried to touch the 36-year-old woman but she
guessed he was a fraud and raised the alarm as he fled.
Police are investigating it as an attempted indecent assault.
"A man entered a ward and told a patient that
he was a nurse," a hospital spokeswoman said last night.
"The patient was suspicious that he was not
wearing proper identification and reported the
incident to the nurse in charge. Staff saw the
male leaving the ward but were unable to detain him."
She said the matter was immediately referred
to security and police, who interviewed patients and staff.
The spokeswoman was unable to give details about
the woman or her condition last night.
A staff member at the hospital said: "We have
thieves coming in all the time. It's really hard
to stop them. We're a hospital, not a prison."
Witnesses said the offender was wearing a white-collared
shirt with a tattoo visible on his chest. He is described
as between 35 to 40 years old, 175cm tall, with a muscular
build, a tan, and a shaved head with a small amount of
blond and brown regrowth...Crime Stoppers-1800 333 000.
