A Pakistani-American oral surgeon has been charged with first degree sexual assault of an anaesthesised male-patient.
Bilal Ahmed has been accused of forcing the sedated patient to perform oral sex on him. The patient, who went to show Ahmed a chipped tooth in May 2014 at his practice centre, Universal Smiles, in Washington DC, said the dentist knocked him out with nitrous oxide and then unbuttoned his trousers and forced him to perform oral sex.
The patient claimed that an assistant was present when the anesthesia was administered; however, midway through the assault, the victim woke up and the assistant was gone. At this point, Ahmed, a married father of six, quickly pulled up his pants and rushed the victim off to a recovery room.
The victim immediately contacted the police after leaving the office.
A detective asked the victim to call the dentist and ask him if the incident was a hallucination. During the recorded conversation, Ahmed confessed to the crime, telling the victim he was “not crazy” and that he had, indeed, sexually assaulted him whilst he was under anesthesia.
The 43-year-old was arrested at New York‘s JFK airport while returning to the United States from Pakistan on January 7. He was later released after posting $50,000 bail and is due back in court on February 17.
