Belfast man accused of sex assault on co-worker in care home
A care assistant has gone on trial in Belfast, accused of sexually assaulting a younger female colleague in their workplace.
Rene Razon (47), from Springvale Gardens in the city, denies three offences dating back to 2016.
At the time, Razon and the 23-year-old complainant were employed at a Belfast nursing home.
Crown prosecutor Kate McKay told a jury that the complainant went to the PSNI on June 5, 2016, claiming she had been sexually assaulted by Razon.
She was interviewed the following day, where she made a series of allegations.
She claimed on one occasion Razon entered an elderly resident's room while she was tending them. He allegedly pulled a curtain so the resident's view was blocked, then lifted her tunic and bra up and proceeded to sexually assault her.
Belfast Crown Court heard that when he was arrested on June 6, 2016, Razon, originally from the Philippines, denied the allegations.
