Joliet Police Chief Brian Benton said officers were called at 4:45 a.m. to Salem Village, 1314 Rowell Ave., where “witnesses reported contact between a health care worker and a 19-year-old disabled patient.”

The woman was taken to a hospital, and detectives interviewed witnesses before arresting Timola, Benton said.
