Married Nigerian Surgeon Has Been Arrested In The US For Sexual Assault

A married Nigerian surgeon has been arrested in the US for Sexual assault. It’s understood that Dr. Donald Okechukwu Ozumba ‘sexually assaulted a patient while her husband was in the room then asked what the favorite part of her visit was’ eight months after a disabled client said he groped her. The police said the offenses happened at OSSM Orthopedics in the 8000 block of State Highway 121 in McKinney.

According to court records, the 44-year-old faces two charges of sexual assault. He was arrested McKinney police on Mar. 31 and booked at the Collin County Jail, where his bail was set at $50,000. Even though he was released on Sunday, the Texas Medical Board has temporarily suspended Ozumba’s medical licence “after determining his continuation in the practice of medicine poses a continuing threat to public welfare”. It’s gathered that the board will will look into the allegations before taking further action. The release said:

One of the women accusing the surgeon of sexual assault claimed she went to his office last week to be treated for a sports injury but Dr. Ozumba exposed half of her genitals to check for internal fluid and told her he needed to rub in the medication he had injected under her left hip. He then massaged the area, penetrated the woman’s genitals with his fingers and massaged her inside. The police said that the woman’s husband was sitting behind the doctor but couldn’t see what was happening.

According to the arrest warrant affidavit, the woman told the police that she contacted another doctor after the visit and asked whether what Ozumba had done was normal procedure. The second doctor informed her that Ozumba was “absolutely not supposed to penetrate her vagina”. It’s understood that Ozumba asked the woman to download a messaging app shortly after the visit and sent her a text asking what her favorite part of the procedure was. The woman then texted him back with a message that said “Not receiving a script,” then deleted the app. This didn’t discourage Ozumba as he continued to pester the woman with texts asking her to come back in.

According to an arrest warrant affidavit, she had gone to the doctor to get a shot for a physical disability. It’s gathered that Dr. Ozumba had been rude to the woman during her first two appointments, but he became “charming” during the third visit. The woman had been given paper shorts and a gown to cover herself during a sonogram but the doctor told her that he couldn’t help her until she undressed and told her to cover up with a sheet. He is understood to have rubbed the outside of her legs like he was feeling for something and then began to rub the inside of her legs. The woman further told the police that she felt something poking her genitals and thought it was the sonogram machine cord but realized it was the doctor. He then left the room and came back, had her roll on her side, lifted her leg and rubbed her groin.

The woman jumped to her feet and dressed up when Dr. Ozumba left the room again and told a nurse that she had another appointment and left. “[The victim] stated that Ozumba was trying to ‘masturbate’ her,” police wrote in the affidavit.
