(Scroll down for video) Women may finally get justice after they were sexually assaulted by a nurse in a hospital in California.

The Los Angeles Police Department announced that they have located 48-year-old Ramon Gaspar, after he fled in 2006, following a nail hearing.

Gaspar was on the run for 11 years, after he was accused of sexually abusing patients at a hospital, where he worked as a nurse.

Women who were treated at the Tarzana Medical Center in Encino, accused Gaspar of sexually abusing them.
Several patients were molested while still feeling the effects of anesthesia and therefore, were unable to resist or defend themselves.

Gaspar was charged with three counts of sexual assault. However, after several other victims came forward, prosecutors then filed seven additional counts of sexual assault. After being released on bail a second time, Gaspar fled.

Gasper took along his wife and six-year-old son. He left his two other children with relatives.

His victims ranged in age from 29 to 64. Police never stopped looking for him. For many years, investigators focused on Guatemala, where he was born.

The TV show “America’s Most Wanted” also featured him and they offered a $50,000 reward sponsored by the Los Angeles City Council.

Tips led detectives to Gasper, and he was extradited back to the United States. This time, Gaspar is being held without bail.
