A 26-year-old certified nursing assistant at a rehabilitation and health care facility in Wilton is accused of sexually assaulting an 82-year-old woman and a 66-year-old woman.

Police said Wilton Meadows Health Care Facility, at 439 Danbury Road in, Wilton, contacted authorities on Monday to file a complaint about inappropriate contact between 26-year-old Hunter Scott McGinty, of Danbury, and an 82- year-old female patient, police said.

Another certified nursing assistant reported that McGinty inappropriately touched the victim during the course of his duties, according to police, and the administrative staff then contacted the Wilton Police.

Police said McGinty is also accused of sexually assaulting a 66-year-old woman at the same facility in August and September.

He was held in lieu of $32,500 cash bond, but posted bond and is due back in court on Dec. 16.
