KAHALA (KHNL) - A Kalihi man is in police custody, accused of sexually assaulting three elderly women at a senior living complex.

Investigators say the 24-year-old nursing aide fondled the women at the Kahala Nui retirement community. Two of his alleged victims are 92 years old. The third is 89.

Residents at the complex say management sent them a letter informing them about the case.

We spoke with a private nurse, employed by a resident of the complex.

"That was really sad," said Mara Rambaud, a private nursing aide for a Kahala Nui resident. "It made me felt like horrible. I just wanted to like, 'oh my God, what is he doing?' They're old and this would be a safe place, you know."

Police arrested Mark Genetiano on suspicion of five counts of sexual assault. He reportedly has been fired from his job.
