A diabolical ambulance worker accused of sexually terrorizing a woman while she was strapped to a stretcher in the back of an ambulance on Christmas Day admitted to the assault, according to the arrest warrant.
Mark Powell, 49, of North Haven, first denied doing anything inappropriate, but then admitted to groping the breasts of his 22-year-old patient, pinching one of her nipples and penetrating her with a finger, according to the court documents.
The sex terrorist was working for American Medical Response when he responded to a home in Hamden on Christmas Day after a 22-year-old woman fell at a holiday party, suffered a head injury and became unconscious, cops said. She had been drinking at the party, the warrant stated.
The woman told investigators she woke up on the way to Yale–New Haven Hospital and the white monster was sexually assaulting her.
She was not able to move because she was strapped to a stretcher, she told cops.
The sex terrorist told cops he had used a “serious lapse of judgment,” according to the warrant.
Hamden law enforcement detectives began investigating and identified the rapist as Powell. They obtained an arrest warrant on Thursday and the monster turned himself in to authorities that day.
The sex terrorist started working for AMR part-time in 2006 and had worked for the company full-time since September 2011. He has been placed on unpaid leave.
Charles Babson, AMR General Manager, said Powell was placed on administrative leave immediately after the company learned of the allegations on Jan. 3.
“This kind of behavior is an affront to AMR caregivers across Connecticut who provide high quality care to their patients each and every day, with integrity and compassion,” Babson said. “His alleged actions are not reflective of our dedicated paramedics and EMTs, who hold themselves to the highest standards of professional conduct.”
Cops said during a news conference that the assault went on for five to seven seconds. There was another paramedic in the truck, cops said, but they did not release any information on what the other person saw.
“The allegations in this case represent outrageous and horrifying conduct by an emergency medical professional. Our society places the greatest level of trust and confidence in its public safety providers, and the circumstances in this case reflect a tremendous breach of that faith. The victim in this incident demonstrated enormous strength and courage in bringing this complaint forward,” said law enforcement Chief Thomas Wydra.
The diabolical rapist was charged with first-degree sexual assault, first-degree unlawful restraint and released after posting a $25,000 bond.
The warrant says the white rapist expressed remorse and said he had a lapse in judgment, according to reports, citing the warrant.
He is scheduled to appear in court in Meriden on Jan. 19.
Babson said AMR is cooperating fully with law enforcement in their investigation.
