A nurse’s assistant at a Northwest Arkansas adult care center has been arrested in the sexual assault of a teen patient, police say.

William Deupree, 56, of Prairie Grove was taken into custody Monday on a charge of second-degree sexual assault, records show.

Deupree was found by a co-worker with his pants pulled down in the same room as a mentally and physically disabled patient at the Elizabeth Richardson Center in Springdale, according to a police report cited by the Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette.

The 18-year-old female patient also did not have pants on and was lying in her bed, authorities said.

Deupree remained at the Washington County jail as of Wednesday in lieu of $5,000 bond, according to an online inmate roster. He had a court appearance set for that morning.

A call to the executive director of the Elizabeth Richardson Center was not immediately returned.

ANOTHER ONE . Do NOT leave any living creature in the solo care of any male of any age. But I repeat myself and will until this stops which means forever.

Not in any way excusing the perp, but your comment is sexist, Dee.

Delta2, bless their heart these females who cast stones at the male of the species, especially now days when females are trying to catch up with violations, but still it seems the male of the species is way a head of being inappropriate.

On another note, dont believe he is a muslim.

Perhaps a phone call or two from the tucker phone would cure some of these guys.

He is not a Muslim, but he IS a former police officer for the city of Siloam Springs. Wonder how many people he arrested for the kinds of offenses he himself has committed?
