Doctor accused of drugging patients before assaulting them

A DOCTOR has been arrested and charged after allegedly drugging a number of women and indecently assaulting them at a medical practice in Sydney’s inner-west.

One of the victims, a 20-year-old woman, came forward and reported the incident to detectives at Glebe Police Station on Friday, August 31.

The woman told police she had been indecently assaulted by the 48-year-old doctor after he allegedly drugged her without her knowledge at a medical practice at Auburn.


While investigating the serious allegations, detectives identified a further three alleged victims.

Officers yesterday raided the Auburn medical practice and searched the accused doctor’s home at Rydalmere and seized a number of items.

The 48-year-old was arrested and taken to Granville Police Station where he was charged with three counts of aggravated indecent assault and using intoxicating substances to commit an indictable offence.

The man was released on bail and is due to appear in Downing Centre Local Court next month.

Police say further charges are expected to be laid.
