A medical worker repeatedly raped a disabled woman in her hospital bed - after an internal inquiry had cleared him of molesting a paraplegic teenager in similar circumstances
, a court heard.
Naraindrakoomar Sahodree, 59, a health care assistant, had first been accused of encouraging the 18-year-old to drink whisky, stroking her inner thigh and trying to kiss her.
Her father complained, but the hospital allowed Sahodree, who is from Mauritius, to keep his job
- and the following year her allegedly preyed on a 46-year-old Multiple Sclerosis sufferer.
Sahodree, of Tottenham, north London, is appearing at Blackfriars crown court in the south of the capital on trial for rape and three counts of sexual assault. He denies all the charges against him.
She said another male member of staff at the hospital, a nurse, had been helping her shower when he told her 'You've got great boobs', and said she had made him aroused.
But the woman, who cannot be named for legal reasons, said she had not been offended by those comments.
She said: 'He was looking at my boobs because he was showering me at the time. I have got great boobs - because I haven't had kids. I'm an attractive lady.
'He was very respectful and I admired him for that. I wasn't going to complain because he didn't do anything to me.'
But she said that Sahodree - who was known as "Mike" in the hospital - then on several occasions came up to her bed and groped her private parts.
She said she thought nothing of it because she assumed he was a nurse and that he was carrying out some sort of therapy
The woman said: 'He came up to the bedside, he put his hand over my mouth.
'He started to touch me with his hands, stroking my stomach. He then put his hand underneath my bottom.
'My curtains were pulled around me and he pulled my legs over on the left hand side of the bed away from the nurses station.
'He was whispering in my ear, saying 'You like that don't you' and had his hands over my mouth and he raped me for about five minutes.'
When she told him she could get pregnant to try to prevent the attack, Sahodree simply put a towel underneath her, the court heard.
The MS sufferer told police that whenever he heard a noise he slipped away, but that he kept returning and continued to rape her for five hours, until dawn approached.
He even several times lifted her off the bed and helped her use a commode, she claimed, but would then continue raping her.
She reported him the next morning, and investigating officers contacted the girl who had claimed to be his first victim - but whose complaint had been rejected by the hospital.
The case continues.
