Heterosexual dentist rapes 16 year old teenager while she is knocked out. Do you think other hospital workers don't get caught raping or otherwise sexually assaulting patients in a coma or otherwise unconscious and unaware of what's being done to them?
A Bronx dentist was arrested yesterday on charges that he twice raped a 16-year-old patient whom he had placed under anesthesia during an office visit on Thursday, the police said.
The girl, a patient of the dentist for several years, was hired for a summer job as his receptionist on Thursday, and had an appointment with him for treatment that afternoon, said Lieut. Hazel Stewart, commander of the Bronx Special Victims Squad.
The dentist, Anthony Richardson, 36, was arrested at 11:30 A.M. yesterday and charged with rape and aggravated sexual abuse, said Officer Rosa Atamyildiz, a police spokeswoman. Dr. Richardson, whose office is at 840 Grand Concourse in the Melrose section, has been licensed since 1984, Officer Atamyildiz said.
Lieutenant Stewart said the girl had a 4:30 P.M. appointment with Dr. Richardson.
"She went in and she changed into a little uniform that he gave to her, and he gave her some files to work on," the lieutenant said. "Then he said that it was time to take a look at her teeth."
