Reality TV dating show doctor, woman charged with California drug rapes

The six

It was a lifestyle he pushed not only in his medical work but on realty TV, where he appeared on a Bravo dating show wearing his hospital scrubs and a wide smile.

A well-known surgeon from Newport Beach and his girlfriend are accused of drugging and sexually assaulting two women, and Southern California authorities said they believe there could be many more victims.

According to KTLA, 38-year-old Grant William Robicheaux and his friend, 31-year-old Cerissa Laura Riley, are expected to face charges including rape by use of drugs, oral copulation by controlled substance, assault with the intent to commit a sexual offense, and possession of a controlled substance with the intent to distribute.

OC District Attorney Tony Rackauckas addressed the jaw-dropping accusations in a press conference in Santa Ana on September 18, telling the media that the couple were charged with assaulting two women in particular. ABC News is attempting to reach them for comment.

Robicheaux appeared in 2014 on the Bravo's show Online Dating Rituals of the American Male, which followed him as he looked for a girlfriend.

Robicheaux went to Louisiana State University for his undergraduate degree and his medical training, graduating in 2007. He is a board-certified orthopaedic surgeon who says he repairs sponsored athletes.

Investigators are trying to identify the other women in the videos and asked anyone who has encountered the couple to come forward. "Based on this evidence, we believe that there might be many unidentified victims out there", he said.

"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.

"It's very disarming to have a lady going up to another lady and start having a conversation and socializing, then meet the boyfriend, have a couple drinks, and get invited back to their place", Rackauckas said.

Those videos were recovered this year by Newport Beach detectives.

The pair traveled to festivals like Burning Man in Nevada and events in Palm Springs, California, the District Attorney's office said Tuesday, calling for any possible victims to contact investigators. The victim woke up and screamed for help until police responded and investigated. She told authorities she consumed large amounts of alcohol before they invited her to Robicheaux's residence for an afterparty.

The party was on a boat, Rackauckas said.

Dr. Grant William Robicheaux, who has appeared on the Bravo series "Online Dating Rituals of the American Male", and Cerissa Laura Riley were arrested last week and are facing multiple felony charges in California.

The woman tested positive for multiple drugs the following day after she complained she was drugged and raped to Newport Beach law enforcement.

Prosecutors say that Robicheaux and Riley met the first woman, 32, at a Newport Beach restaurant in April 2016.

The second alleged victim met the couple six months later in a Newport Beach bar.

She alleges the pair sexually assaulted her and meant to rape her before she woke up and screamed for help.

A subsequent search of Robicheaux's home on January 9 turned up large quantities of illegal drugs along with a small arsenal of firearms. Rackauckas said no women from the Bravo show have been connected with the cellphone videos.

Robicheaux was also charged with two counts of possession of an assault weapon.

But investigators found hundreds of videos on Robicheaux's phone after he was arrested, showing women "in various states of undress, consciousness and being assaulted", Ms Van Der Linden said. Robicheaux's medical license is now under review by the Medical Board of California, CBS2 learned.

Both of the accused have been freed on $100,000 (£76,000) bail bonds.
