EPD investigating reported sexual assault at assisted living facility


The Elizabethton Police Department is investigating a possible sexual assault at an unnamed assisted living facility, according to Chief Jason Shaw.

The chief confirmed to us someone filed the initial report on December 17 after the alleged victim, an elderly woman, shared information with the person, but Chief Shaw says it’s unclear exactly when the alleged crime occurred.

He told us police have not filed any charges at this time and said he will not confirm the exact location in Elizabethton, because he doesn’t know if that will cause an issue with the investigation.
