SANTA ANA, Calif. (KABC) — The Orange County District Attorney’s Office announced Tuesday that there may hundreds of alleged victims of a Newport Beach surgeon and a woman believed to be his girlfriend, both of whom are accused of drugging and sexually assaulting at least two women.

OCDA Tony Rackauckas held a news conference in Santa Ana, where he announced charges against 38-year-old Grant William Robicheaux and 31-year-old Cerissa Laura Riley. The two were charged with sexually assaulting two women by use of drugs.

Robicheaux and Riley are accused of teaming up to prey on women by meeting them at bars, drugging them – or coercing with copious amounts of alcohol – and then bringing them back to the man’s apartment to sexually assault or rape them.

Other charges include oral copulation by anesthesia or controlled substance, assault with intent to commit a sexual offense and possession of a controlled substance for sale.

Rackauckas said there is video of the sex acts on one of the two victims who have come forward. Prosecutors believe that based on the videos and pictures found on the pair’s phones, there may be upwards of 1,000 other victims.
