Zachariah Reeves accused of sexually assaulting elderly man

FLORENCE, Ala. - A nursing assistant is behind bars tonight accused of sexually assaulting an elderly man in Florence. 

21-year-old Zachariah Reeves is charged with first-degree sodomy and second-degree elder abuse. Reeves works as an CNA at Mitchell-Hollingsworth Nursing And Rehabilitation Center. Police said he assaulted an elderly man last Thursday.

"This is an ongoing investigation and we're still going to keep talking to witnesses and employees to make sure that we don't have any other victims or any other situations that we need to look into," said Sgt. Greg Cobb.

Reeves is held in the Lauderdale County Detention Center on a $60,000 bail. If convicted, he faces up to life in prison.
