SPRINGFIELD TWP, OH (FOX19) -

A 57-year-old nursing home resident is scheduled to face a Hamilton County judge Friday on a rape charge.

David Henson is accused of attacking a woman with whom he shares a room at Heartland of Mt. Airy, 2550 Banning Rd.

Henson's bond was set at $10,000

He became angry with her on Sunday, ordered her to take off her pants and penetrated her several times with objects, police wrote in court records.

She did what he said because she was afraid of him. He also has verbally and mentally abused her before, according to police.

Heartland of Mt. Airy released a statement saying:

"Earlier this week we discovered a resident behaved inappropriately toward another resident. We contacted authorities and conducted a prompt investigation. We continue to cooperate with the authorities. The resident was immediately placed on one-to-one supervision until the police completed their investigation and removed him from the center.

Heartland does not under any circumstances; condone any instances of abuse or inappropriate treatment of our residents, staff or visitors. The well-being of our residents is our primary concern and we continue to be committed to each resident's emotional and physical comfort. Providing quality care to our patients and residents in a secure environment is of paramount importance to us at Heartland.

Due to the sensitive nature of this situation, we cannot compromise the investigation by commenting further."
