    Franklin Concepcion, 25, of Ringgold faces a rape charge after he allegedly took a woman from Erlanger hospital's emergency room and sexually assaulted her in an x-ray room. Concepcion works as a technician at the hospital, according to a Chattanooga Police Department arrest report.

The patient claims Erlanger triage technician Franklin Concepcion raped her in an x-ray room in November. The judge has sent the case to the grand jury, but even she admits it's a "very difficult" case.

Erlanger suspended Franklin Concepcion without pay in November. He was arrested last month on rape charges after DNA samples from the exam room came back a match to him. His attorney is building a case to disprove the allegations.
