AKRON, OH (WOIO) - An Akron nursing home worker has been charged with rape.

Lemar Daniels is accused of engaging in sexual intercourse with a female patient at the Middlebury Manor Nursing Home back in May. At the time of the assault, the 49-year-old was working as a STNA at the facility. He has since been suspended.

The victim is a middle-aged woman who suffers from developmental disabilities.

Daniels was napped by officials Friday morning and tossed into the Summit County Jail.

Detectives, however, feel there may be other victims. Anyone with additional information is urged to call 330-375-2490.
