MANSFIELD, Ohio — A 62-year-old employee of an assisted living center in Mansfield is behind bars, charged with raping an 84-year-old resident of the facility. Donald Chinn was arrested Thursday night at his Shelby home and charged with one count of rape.
The daughter of the alleged victim alerted the Waterford assisted living facility in Mansfield about the alleged crime and the executive director then called 911.
He is no stranger to the law, with drug offenses, including drug trafficking, stretching back to at least 1999.
No one at the facility would answer questions about the incident or Chinn's employment. But a spokesperson later sent a statement saying in part that management is "disappointed and concerned."
"We are taking swift action and conducting an internal investigation as well as cooperating with authorities," the statement said. It also said Chinn has been suspended indefinitely.
Chinn's next-door neighbor in Shelby, Brad Sammons, said living near the man has been a nightmare. He said he supports people being given second chances, but can't believe Chinn was allowed to be with vulnerable seniors.
"People need to start over, but not in that situation," he said.
Chinn pleaded not guilty in municipal court and is in the Richland County jail. He's being held on $100,000 bond.
