BRIDGEPORT -A Fairfield man has been charged with sexually assaulting a nurse at St. Vincent’s Medical Center.

Michael Maldonado, 35, of Sunnyridge Avenue, was charged Sunday with fourth-degree sexual assault, interfering with police and breach of peace.

He was being held in lieu of $5,000 bond.

Police said the nurse was standing just inside the door of the emergency area when Maldonado stumbled into the hospital. As he passed the nurse he reached out with his left hand and grabbed her crotch, police said.

The nurse immediately screamed but police said Maldonado didn’t pay her any mind and continued into the waiting room where he was sitting when officers arrived.

Confronted by officers, police said Maldonado began screaming he didn’t do anything wrong and then began spitting at the officers.
