LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - A man who worked as a security guard at University of Kentucky Chandler Hospital has been arrested on a rape charge.

Richard J. Gorman, 22, was arrested for allegedly having sex with a woman while she was unconscious, according to court documents. The Lexington Herald-Leader reports (https://bit.ly/2fR5n0j ) the assault occurred in downtown Lexington on Tuesday.

Gorman also is charged with tampering with evidence, and police say he deleted photographs that were taken “during the encounter.”

University of Kentucky spokesman Jay Blanton says Gorman is not a sworn police officer. Gorman has been suspended pending the outcome of the investigation.
