Woman Claims Sexual Assault By Insurance Agent
The Putnam County sheriff's department is investigating a report by a 61-year-old Cookeville woman, who claims that she was sexually assaulted in her home by an insurance adjuster. The victim filed a report with the sheriff's department on Monday, but claims the incident took place last Wednesday when an agent came to her house to inspect the basement for mold. She claims the man brushed against her and licked the back of her neck, while her husband and health care aide were upstairs in the house. She also claims the agent made crude comments, but says she waited until this week to report the incident because she has been sick. Detective Jimmy Patterson is investigating.
