Dr. Grant Robicheaux and his girlfriend Cerissa Riley, listen during a press conference by their lawyer Phillip Kent Cohen Wednesday, Oct. 17, 2018 in Newport Beach, California.
Los Angeles: An American surgeon and his girlfriend already charged with drugging and sexually assaulting two women are now facing additional charges, authorities said Wednesday.
An Orange County prosecutor said orthopaedic surgeon Grant Robicheaux, a former realty television star, was charged with drugging and assaulting another five women, and that his girlfriend Cerissa Riley, 31, was involved in three of those alleged attacks.
Robicheaux and Riley had previously been accused of rape as well as drug and weapons-related offences in connection with two alleged assaults.
Prosecutors said the couple would meet women in bars and take them to the doctor’s home, where they were sexually abused and filmed.
Robicheaux appeared in a program four years ago called “Online Dating Rituals of the American Male.”
Authorities said they found about hundreds of videos of alleged assaults on Robicheaux’s phone.
