FLORENCE, SC (WMBF) – Two men are facing charges after a nurse found them in the hospital room of an older woman, and they weren't there to see to her care.

The two men were discovered in a room in the McLeod Hospital Woman's Center on Saturday afternoon.

That hospital room, according to the police report, had been assigned to a 70-year-old female who had been ejected during a vehicle collision earlier in the week, and was unconscious during the reported incident.

When the nurse came in to check on her, she found 57-year-old Angelo Fischetti with his hand under the bed sheet and Allan Pollock standing watch outside the door.

The report states the nurse questioned their intentions, to which Pollock answered that Fischetti was, "checking her bladder reaction." The nurse lifted the sheet to find Fischetti was sexually assaulting the female victim as she lay in the bed insensible.

The two men then fled the hospital but police later tracked them down by checking video surveillance records in the hospital.

Fischetti is charged with criminal sexual conduct and abuse of a vulnerable adult. Pollock is charged with the neglect of a vulnerable adult. Booking records show both men were released on bond Monday.
