EMS Station 26, FDNY Paramedic, Charged With Sexual Assault Against a Woman in Ambulance
FDNY paramedic, Karel Delgado, was charged with sexual abuse, forcible touching, and criminal sexual acts according to nydailynews on April 9, 2018. Delgado was arrested under the accusation of forced oral sex. The victim was a 43-year-old-woman on her way to the hospital.
Delgado, who works at EMS Station 26 in the Morrisania neighborhood, arrived at this woman’s house to take her to the Montefiore Hospital in the Bronx. She called 911 around noon, requesting an ambulance because she felt ill, potentially with pneumonia. Once in the ambulance, Delgado asked the woman for permission to examine her. Rather than being examined in the ambulance she was assaulted and groped, Delgado allegedly grabbed her private parts and then took out his penis and touched her face with it.
As soon as she arrived to the hospital, she reported the abuse. Delgado was later arrested and charged on the crimes listed above.
