German doctor allegedly drugs, abuses women
(08-21 18:39)

Authorities in Germany have arrested a hospital doctor on suspicion he drugged and sexually abused female patients participating in a fake clinical study he set up.
German news agency dpa reported Thursday that the unidentified 48-year-old worked at a clinic in the Bavarian town of Bamberg.
Prosecutors accuse him of pretending to conduct the clinical study in order to prey on his victims.
The case came to light after a young woman sought police help last month, and blood tests confirmed she had been sedated against her will.
Officers searched the man's home and office Monday and found electronic evidence that indicated he had "conducted sexual acts on his helpless victim, and photographed them.''
Based on the evidence, investigators believe he also assaulted other -- as yet unidentified -- women. --AP
