84 year old indicted in nursing home sexual assault

A grand jury has indicted an 84 year old man on charges of sexually abusing a patient at a nursing home.

Frankfort Police say a nurse told them she saw Harrison Blankenship sexually assault a woman at the Bradford Square Nursing Center, last month.

Investigators say he was at the nursing home to visit his wife.

Blankenship is charged with first degree assault.

In July 1995, Blankenship was convicted of the rape of a 13 year old girl.

In both cases he denies wrongdoing.
