WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- Winston-Salem police are investigating a possible rape at an assisted living center inside the city.

The alleged victim is a client at the Cornerstone Living Center, at 2900 Reynolds Park Road in Winston-Salem, and the suspect is a worker there. The case is officially being handled as a second-degree rape.

Police say the victim is listed as a female but other information about her was unavailable. The suspect is listed as a male.

The alleged incident was reported on Friday, Sept. 26, at 10:27 a.m. However, the sexual assault allegedly took place six days prior, on Sept. 20.

The case was originally being investigated by patrol officers, but has since been turned over to the Winston-Salem Police Criminal Investigations Division.

Police say at this point, nothing has been proved or found to be false.

FOX8 spoke with a manager at the Cornerstone Living Center, who said they are not releasing any statements at this time.

He did say that the worker has been suspended until the investigation is complete or charges are filed.

Detectives with the Criminal Investigations Division will be speaking with the alleged victim, suspect, family members, workers and whoever else may be involved as they continue their investigation.
