Windell Jordan - Repeat Sex Offender - Assaults woman in the nursing home

A 61-year-old city man was arrested Tuesday after allegedly fondling a resident of the Marathon Healthcare Center.

Windell Jordan, who lives at the center, was charged with fourth-degree sexual assault and second-degree burglary after allegedly entering a woman's room, groping her and asking for oral sex, police said.

Jordan is registered as a sex offender stemming from a 1989 conviction of second-degree sexual assault, according to the state Department of Public Safety's Web site.

The woman, who is in her 40s, was crying when a member of the staff asked what was wrong.

The woman said Jordan entered her room and touched her without her consent, police said. She also told the worker that Jordan kissed her several times over the last couple of weeks without her permission, according to police.

Jordan asked her for oral sex and she refused, the woman said.

Marathon is a 24-hour nursing center that provides short-term rehabilitation, long-term care, dementia services, hospice care and respite services.

The rooms at Marathon do not have locks, but residents are not allowed in another person's room without consent, Lt. Paul Resnick said.

The woman is being treated for a developmental disability, Resnick said.

Police said Jordan has multiple arrests on his record but did not specify the previous charges.

Jordan was held on $100,000 bond and is due in court Oct. 24.
