EASTON, Md. — A former Maryland hospital worker has been charged with sexually assaulting an unconscious patient.

Easton police said 35-year-old Travis K. Brooks of Trappe, Maryland, was arrested Tuesday on charges of rape, sex offense, abuse of a vulnerable adult and assault. 

Authorities began an investigation in April after Easton police were called to the University of Maryland Shore Medical Center. 

Officers were told that a patient had money stolen from her wallet while having a procedure done. 

Investigators identified Brooks as a suspect and later found a video that police say shows him assaulting an unconscious patient in December. 

It's unclear whether Brooks has an attorney who could comment.
