A 29-year-old man from Seattle was recently charged for continuously raping a disabled victim while he was taking care of her at a facility. Nshimiyiana O Hamzat was charged in King Country Superior Court under first-degree rape, second-degree rape, and indecent liberties. The sexual assaults that the 29-year-old was charged under are alleged to have taken place between June 1 and July 3, 2019, at North Seattle in an assisted living health care facility.

According to KIRO7, in the charging documents, prosecutors said that Hazmat was employed at the facility as a nursing assistant. He worked there as a care provider to various vulnerable adults when the sexual assault took place. 

A 50-year-old woman, who was the victim to his assault, complained to her family that he was assaulting her in the facility, the prosecutors stated. The cops also shared that a family member called them on July 2 to report the sexual assaults. 

The family member then installed a hidden camera in the victim's room. In the charging documents, the prosecutor wrote, "The camera captured the defendant sexually assaulting her twice a day, on two different occasions. The videos did not capture the totality of the sexual abuse the victim suffered at the hands of the defendant."

Under reasonable grounds, the police shared that when they contacted Hazmat and confronted him about the assaults, he denied them saying he hadn't had any inappropriate sexual contact complaints and added that he hadn't done anything wrong either.

When the police showed Hazmat the video of himself assaulting the 50-year-old victim and penetrating her, he continued to stick to his answer that he was doing patient care.



 

 

Later, on July 3, Hazmat was booked into the King County Jail under investigation of rape. Currently, Hazmat still remains in jail in lieu of a $200,000 bail. Hazmat's arraignment where he'll enter a plea is expected to take place sometime later this month.

According to a KIRO7 reporter, the DSHS shared that Hamzat owns the Rose Garden Adult Family Home situated in Bothell. He also said that the operations have been suspended there as the state continues their investigation and the four residents were relocated elsewhere.
