He was supposed to help residents at a Shoreview group home, but he sexually assaulted one, charges say

A Mounds View man who worked the overnight shift at a group home is accused of sexually assaulting an adult resident with the mental capacity of a 6-year-old, authorities say.

Lawrence Nyakundi Mokaya, 41, was charged Wednesday with one count of second-degree criminal sexual conduct, according to the criminal complaint filed against him in Ramsey County District Court.

The charge alleges that Mokaya’s actions caused personal injury to the 24-year-old woman.

A therapist at the Shoreview-based group home became aware of the matter as she read a story to the woman about a father hugging his son last Thursday, charges say.

“Lawrence does that to me,” the woman told the therapist, according to the criminal complaint.

Concerned, the therapist started asking the woman more questions about her interactions with Mokaya and learned that he also kissed the resident, groped her body and digitally penetrated her, charges say.
