DUNCAN, B.C. - The RCMP in B.C. are investigating a sex assault on an 83-year-old woman in a hospital and a separate attack on a 102-year-old man.

The woman was a patient in the Cowichan District Hospital in the Vancouver Island city of Duncan when she was attacked on Dec. 21.

Police say a 46-year-old man who was also a patient at the hospital was arrested shortly after the attack and is scheduled to appear in court next month on a charge of sexual assault.

In the North Okanagan town of Enderby, police are looking for the people who attacked the 102-year-old man.

He was on some property acting as the executor for the will of a dead friend when a group of males approached him.

Police say the assailants knocked or threw him to the ground, leaving the man with back injuries. (The Canadian Press,CKIZ)
