When officers arrived on scene, they made contact with Roy Larew, 46, of Tunnelton, who was standing beside a vehicle, officers said.

Upon speaking to Larew, officers learned that he was at the hospital because he was in a car accident, according to the complaint.

While Larew was being medically cleared, officers were advised that Larew “‘grabbed’ a male hospital staff member’s buttocks,” and officers also learned that Larew “‘grabbed’ a female staff member’s breast and laughed in a derogatory manner,” officers said.

After obtaining written statements from the victims, Larew was taken into custody, according to the complaint.

Larew has been charged with two counts of sexual abuse. He is being held in Tygart Valley Regional Jail.
