Paramedic threatens to lock co-worker in cupboard after “undressing her with his eyes”

SHARE

A paramedic from Cardiff, Wales, is accused of sexually harassing a female colleague in the Bristol station of South Western Ambulance Service.

During a hearing on the misconduct allegations, the alleged victim said that Dean Mahony threatened to “lock her in a cupboard” after “undressing her with his eyes.”

A string of women have reportedly brought similar allegations against the 41-year-old married medic.

The colleague from the ambulance station says she was changing out of her uniform to get ready for a party, when Mahony made her feel extremely uncomfortable. The ‘cupboard’ comment made her “feel sick” and clearly had “sexual undertones,” she said.

“I did not want to be alone with Mr. Mahony after that incident. I felt he was trying to groom me and he undermined me in my work. I think he was trying to make it so that he was the only person that I could turn to.”

Wales Online reports that when the woman went to her manager once before about Mahony’s behavior, she was reportedly told: “That’s just the way he is.”

Apparently Mahony has a history of bad behavior with women – not just his co-workers either.  In 2014, when he was trying to sell his home, he allegedly attempted to rape his real estate agent.

While waiting for a couple to view his home, Mahony allegedly started to fondle the woman, while he had her pinned down on the bed. The potential buyers rang the doorbell before Mahony could go any further. The attempted rape claims are no longer being investigated by police, Wales Online reported.

Other female co-workers have come forward accusing Mahony of sexual misconduct, which he denies. One woman claims he tried to sit in her lap, after he commented about her “sexy legs.”

Mahony was a paramedic for 14 years, but resigned two years ago, after an internal investigation into the various allegations got underway.

Depending on what the Health and Care Professions Council decides, he may not be able to return to the profession.
