Charges are pending against a 48-year-old Wahiawa man who allegedly sexually assaulted a patient at the Queen's Medical Center.
The victim was an 86-year-old woman who said she was sexually assaulted about 7 p.m. Monday, police said.
Officers arrested the man later that night on suspicion of first-degree burglary and third-degree sexual assault.
A Queen's spokeswoman said patient safety is the highest priority, and the hospital is conducting an internal investigation.
