Police have arrested a man they say exposed himself and assaulted a nurse at an Oklahoma City hospital.

The Oklahoma City Police Department reports that 47-year-old Barius Hayzlett was arrested Feb. 6 on a complaint of sexual battery.

Just after midnight Feb. 6 police were called to St. Anthony Hospital, 1000 N. Lee. A female nurse told officers that Hayzlett was admitted to the hospital for observation.

Throughout the evening, the man had allegedly been intentionally exposing his genitals to nursing staff. At one point, Hayzlett called a nurse to his room to help with his gown. While the nurse assisted him with his gown, he reportedly grabbed her genitals with his hand.

The nurse told Hayzlett that it was not appropriate and left the room to call police.

Hayzlett was then arrested and booked into the Oklahoma County Jail.
