According to a news report on WBTV, police say 14 more
women have come forward accusing a Nigerian doctor in
Charlotte of sexual assault.Dr. Fidelis I. Uwensuyi-Edosomwan, 52, was arrested on
January 30, on sexual offense charges related to two
patients – two counts of second-degree sexual offense and
three counts of sexual battery and given a $57,500 bond.
On January 2, a woman told police that she went to a
medical facility in the 1800-block of Milton Road for a
medical examination. During that exam, the victim said, Dr.
Uwensuyi-Edosomwan sexually assaulted her.
Then on January 14, a second woman reported that she was
also sexually assaulted by Dr. Uwensuyi-
Edosomwan at a medical facility in the 700-block of West
Sugar Creek Road.
According to the arrest warrants, Uwensuyi-Edosomwan
“unlawfully, willfully, and feloniously did engage in sex
offense with [Victim 1] by force and against that Victim’s
will” on January 2. The warrants state the same for the
second victim on January 14.
The warrants go on to state that Uwensuyi-Edosomwan
“unlawfully and willfully for the purpose of sexual arousal
and sexual gratification engaged in sexual contact, by
pushing his erect penis onto the [second] victim’s hand
during a medical examination by force and against the will
of the other person.”
The warrants state that Uwensuyi-Edosomwan also “rubbed
the [second] victim’s vagina over her pants with his fingers
after a medical examination” and “lifted the [second]
victim’s shirt and bra and then rubbed her breast during a
medical exam without the victim’s consent.”
WBTV is not releasing the victims’ names.
“Both victims reported within the first 24 hours that it
occurred,” investigators said during a press conference
Tuesday. They also said the alleged victims were not
sedated during the incidents.
Police now say on Feb. 12, that 14 more woman had come
forward claiming they were victimized by Uwensuyi-
Edosomwan. They say the allegations are being reviewed by
detectives to determine if there were any criminal acts
committed.
The NC Medical Board documents note that Uwensuyi-
