MESA, Ariz. (AP) - Authorities say a Mesa doctor is accused of sexual abuse after another patient has reported being inappropriately touched by him during a medical exam.
Mesa police said Monday that Dr. Manuel Abrante is being held on suspicion of two counts of sexual abuse.
They say the 56-year-old Abrante has declined comment on the advice of his attorney.
A 45-year-old woman told Mesa police that Abrante inappropriately touched her during a medical exam Friday.
Investigators arrested Abrante after discovering a similar complaint against him in 2006.
Court records show that case also involved a 45-year-old woman, who didn't seek prosecution against Abrante until now.
