Police in a suburban Philadelphia community are investigating an alleged indecent assault that happened while a woman was being transported to an area hospital in the back of an ambulance.

Police said the crime took place Aug. 25 in Brookhaven Borough, Delaware County, according to 6abc.

A woman reportedly in a semi-conscious state was being transported to a nearby hospital to receive additional care.

During the trip, an EMT caring for the woman in the back of the ambulance allegedly exposed her breasts and took photographs of her, according to police. The EMT was later identified as Kevin Hakeem Pressley, 24, of Philadelphia.

Pressley was arrested Saturday and is charged with indecent assault, invasion of privacy and other related crimes, the story said.

According to the criminal complaint, when investigators asked Pressley if they could search his phone, he made a series of disturbing statements including being involved with illegal firearms purchases.

Michael Vice, Brookhaven’s chief of police, said the statements were concerning. “I can promise you that it’s going to be looked into and we will go down every alley we have to,” Vice said.

Pressley is being held at the George W. Hill Correctional Facility on a $100,000 cash bail, the story said.
