A patient at Temple University Hospital says he was raped by a female nurse in the middle of the night.

Police tell NBC10's Nefertiti Jaquez they are investigating these claims.

According to the police report, the 65-year-old man was staying at the hospital after a motorcycle accident. The alleged sexual assault happened on Feb. 27 at 3:30 a.m. inside a hospital bathroom.

The man says a nurse in her 20s entered his room and offered to give him a bath, according to the police report, which then details the graphic nature of the attack.

A Temple University spokesperson released this statement to NBC10's Jaquez:

"When we were made aware of the allegation, we promptly investigated the matter and found no basis to support the claim. We are cooperating fully with Police."

No arrests have been made. Police say the alleged incident is an open case that they are "taking very seriously and are investigating."
