At a facility on the south side of Chicago, called Rainbow Beach Care Center, a 61-year-old woman said she was afraid to fight or scream and could only say, "No, no, no, please," while she was allegedly raped by a 47-year-old man with schizophrenia and a "history of inappropriate sexual behavior toward females," according to a state health department report.
