Last Update: 7/13/2020

A suspect has been arrested in the sexual assault of an elderly resident at Balboa Nursing and Rehabilitation Center following the processing of DNA evidence collected at the scene. 48-year-old Lusean Arline was taken into custody on Monday, November 4 on suspicion of burglary, forcible rape, felony sexual assault, elder abuse and violation of terms of his parole.

According to the police, Arline illegally entered the nursing home on October 27 and sexually assaulted the woman in her bed. Other patients were present in the room at the time of the alleged assault, and the victim and these other patients began screaming. Staff members responded and Arline fled the scene, according to a police news release.

Justice For Nursing Home Sexual Assault Victims and Their Families

Attorney contributor and sexual assault lawyer Mike Pfau has dedicated his career to helping sexual assault victims and their families find answers, support, and justice. Here are some thoughts from Bobby on the options for legal recourse available to nursing home sexual assault victims and their families:

“The safety of patients and residents must be the top priority for all nursing homes. Unfortunately, sexual abuse is a major problem all throughout our nation’s nursing homes. The perpetrators are typically nursing home employees, fellow residents, or intruders who illegally enter the facility. When a nursing home resident is sexually abused, there are grounds for a lawsuit, depending on the circumstances and who the perpetrator was,” Mr. Pfau concluded.
