Police said an investigation started on Jan. 29 after a 37-year-old woman reported that she had been sexually assaulted by a doctor during a visit at a medical clinic located on Davis Drive, just west of Prospect Street.

Dr. Sam Naghibi was arrested and charged, police said.

Shortly after, police said nine more victims came forward and reported sexual assault incidents, including one involving a 14-year-old girl. Investigators said another victim reported being sexually assaulted after being given a “potent pain medication injection.”
