EAST PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — A Warwick man accused of sexually assaulting a patient while working at Bradley Hospital in East Providence turned himself in last week, according to Rhode Island State Police.

Nikkilas Jones, 30, was a behavior health specialist at the hospital from Nov. 2016 to Oct. 2019.

Police allege that while Jones was employed there, he sexually assaulted a juvenile patient on two occasions in late 2018.

Jones surrendered to police last Friday after a warrant was issued for his arrest. He’s charged with two counts of second-degree sexual assault.

Police said Jones was arraigned in Superior Court and released on $20,000 personal recognizance.

The investigation is ongoing, and anyone with information regarding Jones is asked to contact the Rhode Island State Police Major Crimes Unit at (401) 764-5394.
