Carer 'found raping disabled woman with brain injury'

A carer has been arrested on suspicion of raping a disabled patient at a home for people with brain injuries.

The 24-year-old man has been sacked from the care home after he was allegedly discovered by another member of staff in the adult female patient's room at night when he was not supposed to be there.

The man, who has not been named, was a carer at privately-owned home Swanborough House in Brighton, East Sussex.

Swanborough House looks after 31 adults with brain injuries or neuro-disabilities and the owner has confirmed the man passed all necessary checks when he was employed.



The man, from Peacehaven, near Brighton, remains on bail until October 10 while Sussex Police investigate the alleged incident on June 12 this year.

Dr Gerhard Florschutz, owner of Raphael Medical Centre, which owns the home, said Brighton and Hove City Council found that proper safeguarding procedures were in place.

He added: 'We have reported him to the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS). We did all the necessary DBS checks and from an employment point of view everything was done accurately, there was nothing untoward.'

A spokesman for Brighton and Hove City Council said: 'We can confirm that we have looked into this alleged incident, and found that appropriate procedures were in place and were carried out correctly.

'We continue to work closely with the service provider to ensure the safety and wellbeing of all residents.'
