CHARLOTTE, NC — More than 30 women have now come forward, accusing a Charlotte doctor of sexual assault.

Police arrested Dr. Fidelis Edosomwan in January, and charged him in connection to the first two cases.  WCCB Charlotte obtained police reports from 21 additional patients claiming Edosomwan forcibly fondled them.

The women say it happened during exams at Americare clinics on West Sugar Creek Road and Milton Road.  The youngest accuser is 22, the oldest is 63.

The District Attorney’s office is considering additional charges.  Edosomwan is no longer practicing.  His attorney says Edosomwan is innocent.
