Doctor 'drugged and indecently assaulted' his young patient


A doctor has been accused of drugging and indecently assaulting a patient at his practice in Sydney’s inner west.

It’s alleged the 20-year-old woman was drugged without her knowledge or consent while under the care of the 48-year-old who then indecently assaulted her.

Detectives on Thursday searched his Auburn medical practice and Rydalmere home where they seized several items.

He was arrested and as a result of ongoing investigations, three other victims were identified, police said in a statement.

The doctor was charged with three counts of aggravated indecent assault and using intoxicating substances to commit an indictable offence.

He is due to appear in Downing Centre Local Court on November 9, with further charges expected.
