A New London physician reportedly sexually assaulted a female patient during a physical examination. Police say that he was taken into custody around 3 p.m. on Oct. 22 in connection with the allegations. The incident took place around June 9. The woman was left alone in the examination room with the defendant during her yearly physical exam, say authorities.
Immediately following the alleged assault, the woman left and reported the incident to a nurse. Authorities were notified and an investigation was conducted. The physician and several employees at the medical facility were interviewed. A warrant was subsequently issued following a review by the State of Connecticut Superior Court. The defendant was released on a $25,000 bond after turning himself in to authorities.
