AUBURN (CBS13) — A nursing assistant at an Auburn care home was arrested on charges of indecent exposure, accused of showing himself to two elderly women and kissing them against their will.
Family and friends of those staying at the Auburn Oaks Care Center say they are shocked and disgusted by Marlo Quinton’s alleged actions.
“I think it’s pretty bad, because one of them is my mom,” Alan said.
Alan was visiting his 81-year-old mother on Thursday for the first time since Quinton allegedly exposed himself and forcefully kissed her.
“She’s having a hard time with it, but we’ll see what happens,” he said.
Kathy Fieth stopped by the center to visit a friend and hadn’t heard the news. She says she’s disgusted to hear what happened.
“I don’t know, I’m kind of scared for her, because she doesn’t have a hip right now,” she said.
Quinton posted bail and was released on Thursday. No one answered the door at his home.
Kevin Hadfield, the administrator at the center gave CBS13 a statement:
“This behavior is an isolated incident and does not reflect the compassionate care that is delivered each and every day by our dedicated staff.”
Quinton has been fired from his job as the investigation continues.
