SUNBURY – A 62-year-old Sunbury man is jailed on $ 200,000 bail after being charged with allegedly raping a health care worker.

Robert Weaver of S. Front Street was arrested Monday for rape and sexual assault and taken to the Northumberland County Jail after appearing before Sunbury District Judge Mike Toomey.

Sunbury Sgt. Travis Bremigen said the victim told Weaver police that she was uncomfortable all day while taking care of him.

At some point, the nurse went to another room and Weaver followed the victim and then allegedly raped her, Bremigen said.

The victim was able to leave the house and went to a Valley Hospital, where a rape kit was carried out, police said.

Weaver was interviewed by Bremigen and reportedly said “no” to the officer when asked if the woman would consent to sex with him.

Weaver will appear before Toomey for a preliminary hearing at a later date.
