Cape Cod Times - 1/10/2019
Jan. 10--BARNSTABLE -- An East Falmouth man pleaded not guilty Tuesday in Barnstable District Court to a charge that he assaulted a resident of a Sandwich nursing home by touching her breast, while he was also a resident at the home, according to court documents.
Ruby Antone Jr., 72, was summonsed to court and arraigned on a charge of indecent assault and battery on a person over 14 after he failed show up for a Dec. 11 magistrate's hearing, according to the documents. He was released on his own recognizance.
Sandwich police responded on Oct. 17 to Cape Heritage Nursing Home to speak with a resident who reported that Antone Jr., who had also been a resident at the home, had made uninvited sexual comments to her on several occasions, and that on Oct. 4 he had touched her breast without her consent, according to a police report. The alleged incidents occurred while Antone Jr. was visiting his wife, who was the alleged victim's roommate at the home, while his wife was using the bathroom, the report says.
Antone Jr. was discharged from Cape Heritage on the same day of the alleged assault, according to the report.
He's due back in court Feb. 13 for a pretrial hearing.
