Indiana doctor accused of assaulting patient

Posted: Updated:

VALPARAISO, Ind. (AP) -- A physician is facing sexual battery charges alleging that he assaulted a female patient on two occasions at his northern Indiana office.

Forty-5-year-old Jose Agusti of Chicago was taken into custody Thursday and charged with felony criminal deviate conduct and two counts of sexual battery.

The Times of Munster reports court documents say the alleged victim, a disabled veteran, told Valparaiso police in September that Agusti had just sexually assaulted her.

Police fitted the woman with a camera and microphone and she returned to Agusti's Valparaiso office on Oct. 15. Court documents say the footage shows Agusti tapping his lap and asking the woman "Do you want to play with me?" before hugging and groping her.

Agusti remained jailed Friday at the Porter County Jail in Valparaiso.
