Sylvania police investigate report of rape at Flower Hospital

Posted: Updated:

Sylvania police are investigating an alleged rape at ProMedica Flower Hospital.

According to police documents, a suspect forced sexual conduct with the female victim without her consent at the hospital Tuesday or Wednesday of last week.

Sylvania Police Chief William Rhodus says both the victim and the alleged rapist were patients at Flower Hospital at the time of the incident.

Chief Rhodus says no arrests have been made yet. This case remains under investigation.  Detectives are interviewing witnesses, the suspect, and the victim. 

ProMedica spokesperson Tedra White says since this involves two patients, she cannot comment specifically on the case because that would be a privacy violation.

However, she does say that, "Upon learning of the allegation, hospital staff immediately took appropriate action with the alleged victim and reported the incident to the Sylvania Police who are actively investigating.  At ProMedica Flower Hospital, the privacy and security of our patients is a high priority and we are committed to a safe environment."
