A male nurse has been placed under house arrest for allegedly sexually assaulting a foreign tourist at a hospital in Rome.

The incident allegedly happened in July, when the girl, 23, was admitted to the emergency unit of Fatebenefratelli hospital on Isola Tiberina for alcohol intoxication, TGCom24 reported.

The girl told police she caught the 36-year-old assaulting her as she regained consciousness.

He was also accused of a similar incident in 2009.

The accused, who has been suspended from the hospital, presented himself as a candidate for the extreme right Forza Nuova party in the 2013 elections, the website reported.
