Kenyan man arrested for sexually assaulting autistic woman in group home
A Franklin Township man was arrested for allegedly sexually assaulting a 35-year-old autistic woman at the group home where he worked, Somerset County Prosecutor Geoffrey Soriano said Thursday.
Duncan Bosire, 38, is charged with first-degree aggravated assault and remained in the Somerset County jail Thursday in lieu of $250,000 bail, according to authorities.
The alleged assault took place in March at a Shelly Drive group home, where the woman, identified as “S.A.” in court documents, was under the supervision of Bosire, court papers state.
It wasn’t until July 4 — when S.A. was in a new group home — that she “spontaneously disclosed” the information to a staff member at her current home, according to court documents. A forensic interview revealed she had been assaulted more than once and that she was unable to understand her right to withhold consent, the papers state.
Bosire surrendered himself to authorities on Monday, Soriano. It wasn’t immediately clear if he was still employed at the group home when he was arrested.
Authorities have not identified either of the victim’s group homes.
