80-year-old sexually assaulted in N.J. hospital bed: police
Updated June 8, 2018 at 5:18 PM

JERSEY CITY -- An 80-year-old woman recovering from surgery was sexually assaulted in her hospital bed Wednesday by a man who apparently was wandering the halls of the Jersey City Medical Center, authorities said.

Jackie Burgess, 45, of Whiton Street, was charged with aggravated sexual assault and causing the woman pain by pressing on the leg that had recently undergone surgery, the criminal complaint says.

He is also charged with the burglary of another patient's room prior to the alleged sexual assault. Finally, he is charged with committing a lewd act for allegedly masturbating in his jail cell while being monitored on camera, the complaint says.

A spokesperson for the Jersey City Medical Center said the hospital had no comment on the matter at this time because it's an ongoing police investigation.

The 80-year-old told officials she woke to find a man touching her crotch and because she had a catheter, she thought it was a member of hospital staff. After he pushed on her leg, she realized he wasn't in hospital attire and she buzzed for a nurse, the complaint says, adding that he then walked out.
