Brookdale Patriot Heights Statement

Following is a statement from Brookdale Patriot Heights regarding the arrest of a man suspected of recording woman using a bathroom at the Northwest Side adult assisted living facility:

"Our community has been working closely with the local police department on an investigation involving an invasion of privacy in an area of our property. I am disappointed to say the investigation points to involvement by an associate of this community.

"This person is no longer employed by our community. Improper conduct or behavior by an associate is never tolerated at our community under any circumstances. We always put our residents first, and our community is built on a foundation of trust.

"I am very proud of the associate who noticed this and quickly notified police. We are working closely with law enforcement because we take the responsibility of protecting and safeguarding our residents very seriously.  At no time was resident safety or security compromised.

"I’m sorry that for privacy reasons we cannot provide any other information at this time."
