An in-home caregiver sexually assaulted a 106-year-old woman who was bedridden, according to Florida police.

Taquita Lashay Watson, 29, of Pensacola, was arrested at about 2 p.m. Monday after investigators learned she used "a sexual instrument" on the woman whom she'd been assigned to care for over the past three months, according to a Pensacola Police report.

Cops are investigating whether Watson victimized any other patients.

She has worked as a caretaker for eight years, The Smoking Gun reported. In another police report obtained by the site, the Oct. 26 crime is described in gruesome detail:

Watson allegedly "took a [sex toy] and a jar of Vaseline from her pocketbook ... pulled [the victim's] pants and diaper down and told her that this 'would make her feel good.'" She reportedly assaulted the woman despite her screams and pleas to stop.

The victim waited for days until Watson left and called police. She was given a sexual assault examination, which revealed that she had "obvious signs of trauma" to her vagina, according to the police report.

Watson charged with sexual assault and held in lieu of $25,000 bond.
