HOUSTON – Conrad Hargest, 29, was free on bond Tuesday after he was charged in the sexual assault of a 91-year-old woman who was raped at a Houston assisted living center.
Hargest was arrested after authorities received an anonymous tip.
He’s charged with aggravated sexual assault of an elderly or disabled person in the Oct. 1 attack.
The 91-year-old woman told police she was awakened about 3:30 a.m. on Oct. 1 when a man now identified as Conrad Hargest, 29, came into her room at the Creekbend Gardens assisted living center, 8106 Creekbend Drive.
Houston police interviewed the woman at Ben Taub General Hospital and later examined a security tape from the retirement center. It showed a man apparently checking for unlocked doors on all three floors of the building.
He matched the description the woman gave of her assailant, Houston police said.
The tape shows him stopping in an entry way at the woman’s home. He then disappears from the camera for about eight minutes, Houston police said, according to Chron.com
After realizing he was there she asked what he wanted.
“The defendant (Hargest) stated, ‘I am here for the sex and the money,'” according to Harris County court documents.
Houston police said Hargest held the elderly woman down while he assaulted her. Then, he took a rag from the sink and wiped her down then himself.
“The complainant said the rag was cold from the water,” stated the court document against Hargest.
She said Hargest then took the money from her wallet and left her room, officials said.
