CEDAR HILL (CBSDFW.COM) - A 27-year-old man has been arrested and charged with the Aggravated Sexual Assault of a resident at an assisted living center.

Workers at the Crescent Place Assisted Living Center in Cedar Hill called police after finding Ryan Otey in bed with a 76-year-old female resident. Employees told police Otey had his pants off and was lying next to the woman, who has limited mental faculties.

When police arrived they asked Otey to speak with detectives at the police station and he went with them voluntarily. Detectives say during the interview Otey "provided a statement detailing his activities with the resident."

Otey was arrested and transferred to the Dallas County Jail where he is being held on $500,000 bond.

Police are now working to try and determine if Otey had improper contact with any of the other assisted living center residents.
