Two Iowa nursing assistants are facing charges for allegedly having sex with patients at a Residential Care Facility. 
Police in Fayette were first alerted when employees at Prairie View Residential Care Facility contacted them on Feb. 21 to report that two patients, who had been court ordered to be housed at the facility, had suddenly walked away, the Waterloo Cedar Falls Courier reports. 
As officers were investigating the disappearances, they discovered that two nursing assistants, Megan Marie Penney, 26, and Paige Lynn Johanningmeier, 23, had been seen with the missing people after they had left the facility. Both Penney and Johanningmeier had been employed by Prairie View, police say
After an investigation the pair were arrested Tuesday. 
Both nurses allegedly developed a relationship with the two patients that turned sexual when the patients walked away from the facility, police told the outlet.
Penney and Johanningmeier are now both facing charges of sexual exploitation by a mental health worker.
They were released from the Fayette County Jail after posting $2,000 bond, the outlet reports. 
The patients who walked away were later found, with one being taken to the hospital and the other returned to the Prairie View facility.
