Dr. Donald Ozumba has been arrested for alleged sexual assault on his patients

CBS reports that Dr. Ozumba, a very bright orthopedic surgeon was arrested and suspended while his license has been temporarily withdrawn by the Texas Medical Board while a disciplinary panel was set up to investigate the matter.

It was gathered that two female patients had reported the assault and the Medical Board reacted immediately by suspending him after he was arrested by the police.

Dr. Ozumba who is being held by the McKinney Police Department has been charged with sexually assaulting two of his female patients and the temporary suspension will remain in place until the Board takes further action.

the police say in a statement that Dr. Ozumba was taken into custody at his office, and was charged with two counts of felony sexual assault.

According to the arrest warrant, the first victim contacted police in August of 2016, alleging that the assault happened while she was at an appointment to have her IT band examined.

That woman told investigators that Ozumba touched her private parts without her permission during the exam while the second victim was interviewed following another alleged sexual assault by Dr. Ozumba while she was a patient in 2015.
