An ambulance driver arrested after being accused by a patient of alleged sexual abuse
In other incidents, a hospital shuttle driver in north central Florida was arrested after having sex with a patient.
According to an arrest affidavit, the 18-year-old victim told authorities that Kyle Rasmussen, 35, sexually assaulted her twice last September while being driven from a hospital in Gainesville to a recovery center in Ocala.
Police said the victim said “that on both occasions she did not tell Rasmussen and tried to fight him off but was unsuccessful.”
The officials said this during the investigation Rasmussen confirmed that he had picked up the victim from the hospital and that during transport, he and the victim discussed having sex.
He then stopped at a BP gas station and they had sex on a stretcher in the back of the van. He said they then went to a shopping center in Ocala, where they had sex a second time.
According to the arrest report, “Rasmussen insisted that the patient had kissed him on both occasions, undressed and that the sex had been purely consensual.”
Later in the investigation, the officers tried to contact the victim again, but a family member said that She was admitted to a mental health facility and was possibly pregnant after the fact.
Authorities wrote in the official report that they could not determine whether the sex was consensual, but arrested Rasmussen because “the victim, who was in mental health custody, could be safely removed from the custody of a reception center.” Was required to be taken to the custody of a mental health hospital, ie treatment center. Rasmussen violated this statute by his own admission by having sexual intercourse on two occasions, during the transport of the victim.”
For a brief period, Rasmussen was charged with sexual misconduct with a mental health patient and booked into the Marion County Jail.
