ALTUS, Okla. (KFDX/KJTL) — A 26-year-old Altus man has been arrested after local police responded to a call from a nursing home.
Adrian Hughes was arrested on a charge of sexual battery and was taken into custody early Wednesday morning, September 20, 2023, at his home.
According to Chief Tim Murphy in a press release, investigators originally responded to the English Village Nursing Home on Sunday, September 17, 2023, after a female resident reported the sexual battery to the nursing home administration.

Hughes worked as a nursing home employee starting in late July 2023 and was reportedly immediately terminated after the reports were made.
