Grant Robicheaux, Famed Surgeon, Accused of Drugging, Sexually Assaulting Women

Grant Robicheaux and Cerissa Riley have been arrested and charged with rape and assault. Authorities say there may be hundreds of victims based on the video footage they have examined

He has also appeared on the Bravo reality television program "Online Dating Rituals of the American Male".

"I want to know what's wrong with you", the woman told Robicheaux over dinner, "because you seem, like, too ideal".

Grant William Robicheaux, 38, and Cerissa Laura Riley, 31, were charged with rape by use of drugs, oral copulation by anesthesia or controlled substance, and assault with intent to commit sexual offense.

At a news conference Tuesday, Orange County District Attorney Tony Rackauckas said the pair is accused of picking up the women at bars or parties, drugging them to the point that the women became unconscious or almost unconscious, then raping them at Robicheaux's apartment.

Rackauckas says the two women who were assaulted met the pair socially.

In one instance, they allegedly supplied "multiple drugs to the victim" then raped her "while she was prevented from resisting".

Often times, the assaults were videotaped, Rackauckas said. Numerous videos also included Riley, he said.

On top of those charges, both defendants could face further punishment for possessing firearms illegally.

The defendants were arrested on September 12.

The two alleged victims have contacted investigators, Orange County District Attorney Tony Rackauckas said.

"Well, a wolf can wear scrubs or doctor's clothing".

Rackauckas said victims should not be ashamed.

The defendants allegedly met one of their victims, a 32-year-old woman, at a restaurant in Newport Beach in April 2016. Robicheaux and Riley took her home and are accused of "sexually assaulting her with the intent to commit rape", the prosecutor said.

She contacted Newport Beach police the following day and tested positive for a number of unspecified drugs, the prosecutor said. In October, the defendants met the second victim act a bar in Newport Beach and drank with her until she was unconscious.

The victim woke up and screamed for help until a neighbour called police and an investigation was launched. "Based on this evidence, we believe there may be many unidentified victims out there".

Large amounts of illegal substances were found on Robicheaux's property in January this year according to ABC7. He is also accused of possessing two illegal, unregistered assault rifles, four other firearms and several large-capacity magazines. Prosecutors tell the BBC that the suspects' phones yielded "thousands and thousands" of videos of possible victims.

Attorneys for the defendants did not immediately respond to requests for comment, but previously released a statement to multiple media outlets saying the defendants "unequivocally deny" all allegations of nonconsensual sex. "Dr. Robicheaux and Ms. Riley believe that such allegations do a disservice to, and dangerously undermine, the true victims of sexual assault, and they are eager to have the proper spotlight shed on this case in a public trial".

"There are several videos where the women in the videos appear to be highly intoxicated beyond the ability to consent or resist and they're barely responsive to the defendant's sexual advances", said Rackauckas. She feels more intoxicated by the drinks than would ordinarily be expected.

"In the materials we've seized, there are thousands and thousands of videos and images on Robicheaux's phone, many including Riley", Rackauckas said at a press conference Tuesday.
