Michael Cleaver Charged
Michael Cleaver, 56, is charged with the heinous acts while incarcerated at the Eric M. Taylor Center on Nov. 12, according to the Bronx District Attorney’s Office.
Prosecutors allege that Cleaver first lunged at the 39-year-old correctional officer and forcibly touched him at approximately 2:20 a.m. m. inside the facilities.
About 14 hours later, Cleaver allegedly pushed a 51-year-old nurse into her room, locked her in and forced her to get on her floor before stripping her naked and attempting to rape her, prosecutors said.
The district attorney’s office said the attack stopped after the nurse screamed for help and another inmate broke the lock and exploded inside, hitting Cleaver.
Cleaver’s allegedly infamous actions occurred 14 hours apart.
Cleaver was charged Monday with eight counts, including attempted rape, s*xual assault and forcible contact.
