NC abortion doctor accused of raping woman
CHARLOTTE, N.C. – A Charlotte abortion doctor is accused of raping a woman at his home.
WBTV reported that Dr. Ashutosh Ron Virmani was charged with second degree rape and two counts of second degree sexual offense.
The suspect was arrested early Thursday morning and was later released on a $150,000 bond, according to WBTV.
The alleged victim told police she was raped inside the home and he would not let her leave. She was apparently an acquaintance with the suspect and was not one of his patients.
Virmani is a doctor at A Preferred Woman’s Health Center, a southeast Charlotte abortion clinic. The clinic has not said if he is still employed there.
Virmini is expected to appear in court Friday. He has a clear and active license with the Health Department, according to WSOC-TV.
