A former Batavia firefighter who operates a train museum in Medina is accused of sexually assaulting a 27-year-old woman Friday at the museum and may have installed a videotaping system in the building.
Martin Phelps, 67, is accused assaulting the woman at 4:30 p.m.. Medina police have also removed an "extensive" videotaping system from the building.
Phelps bought the museum in 1991 and opened it in 1997 after spending six years remodeling the location.
He was remanded to Orleans County Jail on $5,000 bail.
