AKRON, Pa. (WHTM) -

A resident of a Lancaster County nursing home has been jailed for sexually assaulting an 86-year-old woman with Alzheimer's disease.

Glenn Allen Hershey, 65, of Akron, was charged Sunday with involuntary deviate sexual intercourse, indecent assault and sexual assault, according to a criminal complaint.

According to the criminal complaint, Hershey is a registered sex offender who was not allowed to have private meetings with the woman due in part to her deteriorating medical condition.

After Hershey was seen leaving the woman's room at the Maple Farms Nursing Home in Akron early Sunday, staff members checked on her and found her pants had been pulled down and the bed covers had been pulled away from her feet, the complaint states.

Hershey later admitted to another resident and to a police officer that he performed sexual acts on the woman, according to the complaint.

Hershey was being held in the Lancaster County Prison on $200,000 cash bail. A preliminary hearing was scheduled for January 31.
