A Pennsylvania man is charged with sexually abusing a mentally handicapped 40-year-old woman who has the mental capacity of a 2-year-old.

Frank Wood, 37, targeted the woman at the Aqueduct Racetrack on Super Bowl Sunday, Feb. 2, according to District Attorney Richard A. Brown. A witness said she was in the facility’s restroom when she heard a woman scream and a male voice coming from inside a stall, according to a criminal complaint.

The male voice, identified in court documents as Wood, allegedly said, “Don’t tell anybody.”

The witness then saw Wood exit the stall, adjusting his belt and pants. She then found the victim, naked, inside the bathroom stall, according to the DA.

Wood is charged with a criminal sexual act, attempted rape, endangering the welfare of an incompetent person, sexual abuse and unlawful imprisonment.
