A resident who is a convicted sex offender, allegedly entered a woman's room and assaulted her.

According to the article,  residents there had no idea a convicted sex offender was living among them. One resident's family member called the security at the facility "non-existant."

A spokesman for the facility said that police notified them of the man's past abuses only after he had already been living there.
