An orderly at The Ottawa Hosital's general campus is facing one count of sexual assault.

The Ottawa Police Service Sexual Assault and Child Abuse Unit received a complaint from a woman who had surgery in early December 2018.  

The victim told police she was sexually assaulted by the orderly, post-surgery.

Wilbert Aragon-Baez, 46, of Ottawa, has been charged with one count of sexual assault and is scheduled to appear in court on February 11.

SACA investigators are concerned that there could be other victims.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Ottawa Police Service Sexual Assault and Child Abuse Unit at 613-236-1222, ext. 5944.

Anonymous tips can be submitted by calling Crime Stoppers, toll-free at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS) or by downloading the Ottawa Police app.
