TUCSON – A man is in jail after kidnapping and sexually abusing a nurse from Northwest Medical Center, according to court records.

The nurse finished her shift and found a man sleeping in her car Sunday morning. He had been treated at the hospital the previous night. She agreed to give him a ride, according to a warrant filed by the Pima County Sheriff’s Department.

He pulled a knife and made her drive to an isolated area where he sexually abused her, according to the records.

Anthony David Austin Jr., 18, was initially charged with kidnapping and sexual abuse, according to Pima County Sheriff’s Department Deputy Ryan Inglett.

She dropped him off near Thornydale Road and Linda Vista Boulevard. Deputies found him and arrested him, according to the records.

He is being held in the Pima County jail without bond.

Northwest Medical Center spokesperson Kim Chimene released the following statement:

“The safety and security of our staff and patients is a priority at Northwest Medical Center.  Our security officers regularly round on campus and within the hospital and we have security cameras located in the parking garage.  We encourage people whether they are at the hospital or routinely going about their daily lives, to be vigilant about their surroundings and to notify the authorities if they see anything that is unusual or concerning.
