South L.A. doctor accused of sexually assaulting patients in office
Authorities are looking for more possible victims of a Los Angeles doctor accused of sexually assaulting women in his office.
Police said Steve Leong, 58, grabbed at least four women and kissed them in separate incidents from December 2010 to February 2013 in his office at the Claude Hudson Comprehensive Health Center in South L.A.
The women, who were all Spanish-speaking, were taken into an examination room, where they were assaulted, police said.
Leong was arrested Friday at his home in Arcadia and is being held in lieu of $150,000 bail. He is charged with 15 misdemeanors of false imprisonment, battery and sexual battery.
Police believe there may be more victims.
Anyone with additional information is asked to call the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department Special Victims Bureau at (877)710-5273.
