OKLAHOMA CITY – An Oklahoma City man was arrested after allegedly sexually assaulting a nurse.

On May 18th, police were called to the Southwest Medical Hospital, in the 4400 block of S. Western Ave, in reference to a sexual assault.

A nurse told police that one of her patients, James Cockrell, 62, had sexually assaulted her.

According to the police report, the nurse said she was changing out an IV bag when Cockrell reached over and “straight up grabbed by vagina.”

After the nurse left the room, Cockrell allegedly exposed himself to staff members and started masturbating.

When the police officer questioned Cockrell about what happened, he reportedly told the officer that he didn’t remember.

Cockrell was arrested for sexual battery.
