ESCONDIDO, Calif. (KGTV) — Police have arrested a North County doctor accused of sexually assaulting a patient.

On March 28, Escondido Police say a woman reported being sexually assaulted while unconscious by Dr. Leng Thai Ky, a 40-year-old anesthesiologist from Poway.

EPD detectives investigated the woman's report over the weekend, and arrested Ky on Monday with the help of the U.S. Marshall’s Fugitive Task Force.

Ky, a doctor for the last eight years, has associations with Palomar Hospital, North County Pain Institute, Sharp Community Medical Group, Graybill Medical Group, and the Desert Pain Clinic in Rancho Mirage, EPD says.

Police believe there are more, unidentified victims of Ky and urge anyone with information to call EPD at 760-839-4790.
