Robert Clark on probation over OAP care home attack

An elderly man who sexually assaulted an 81-year-old woman at a care home has been given two years probation.

Robert Clark, 79, forced the woman to perform a sex act on him at the home in Saltcoats last September.

Kilmarnock Sheriff Court heard how his victim suffered from dementia and thought he was her husband.

Clark, whose criminal record stretches back to 1944 and includes serious sexual offences, was also placed on the sex offenders' register.
