A 27-year-old woman at a Brooklyn hospital was molested by a fellow patient previously convicted of sex abuse, authorities said. 

The woman was in a semi-private section of the emergency room at Kings County Hospital when she woke up to find the man molesting her, investigators said.

Gregory Campfield, 52, was arrested and charged with misdemeanor charge of forcible touching. It's not clear if he had an attorney.

A spokesman for Kings County Hospital said in a statement, "Security was immediately alerted, and the male patient was turned over to the NYPD. We are ensuring the patient is receiving all the care and support she and her family need."
