A woman is accused of performing a lap dance on a 100-year-old resident with dementia at the nursing home she worked at.

Brittany L. Fultz, 26, of Marblehead, Ohio, was charged with gross sexual imposition, a fourth-degree felony.

“He did not want this going on,” Sandusky Police Department Detective Anthony Bath told the Sandusky Register. He also described the advance made to the man as “similar to a lap dance.”

Police claimed a video recorded by another former employee in December showed the victim resisting Fultz’ advances, according to FOX 8 Cleveland. The video supposedly showed Fultz straddling the victim’s leg and carrying out lewd acts in front of him. At one point, the 26-year-old allegedly “mooned” the elder.

I can show you new things, I can show you new things,” Fultz is heard saying during the video.

Supervisors at The Commons of Providence in Sandusky, Ohio, reportedly became aware of the unsettling incident on February 12, after the 26-year-old’s co-worker presented them with the footage.

“The employee [Fultz] was placed on administrative leave and has since been terminated,” Staci Lehmkuhl, Executive Director of The Commons of Providence, said in a statement. “We are cooperating with local police who are handling the investigation and we will not comment further about the ongoing investigation.”

Authorities said the video was never shared online and officers confiscated the phone in question. Bath said there’s no evidence that any other videos were filmed.

Along with Fultz, the employee who recorded the video was terminated, according to WTOL.

The 26-year-old was booked into the Eerie County jail on Friday and released on the same day.
