Two nurses have were arrested last week for alleged sex crimes.
On Friday, authorities charged 59-year-old James Christopher Webb with kidnapping and rape, WRAL-TV reports. Police arrested him the same day at the hospital he worked at in Raleigh, North Carolina.
Records show Webb has been charged with second-degree kidnapping, first-degree forcible sex offense and carrying a gun on educational property.
Webb allegedly kidnapped a female over the age of 16 and restrained her without her consent “for the purpose of terrorizing . . . and maintaining sexual servitude,” an arrest warrant states.
Another warrant accused Webb of carrying a handgun onto the hospital’s campus. As of Sunday, he was still being held in the Wake County Jail on a $505,000 bond.
Webb is scheduled to make a court appearance on Monday, according to the television station.
The hospital where Webb worked, WakeMed’s Raleigh campus, is one of the main hospitals in the region and a level-one trauma center.
The charges against Webb come days after a Florida nursing assistant was arrested for the alleged sexual assault of eight women over the span of three years.
Jacksonville prosecutors on Wednesday charged 34-year-old Brandon Young with seven counts of sexual battery, one count of attempted sexual battery and two counts of false imprisonment.
Police are still investigating as to whether Young took advantage of his position at a Jacksonville hospital to prey on the victims, according to the Miami Herald.
WTLV-TV reports that Young would interact with the victims in social settings and then isolate and confine them before initiating each sexual assault. Most if not all of the attacks occurred inside Young’s vehicle, according to investigators.
Police were able to identify Young after running his DNA through an offender database, which resulted in a familial match to one of Young’s relatives.
Young’s alleged sex crimes occurred over the span of three years, from 2006 to 2009.
