Doctor Arrested for Sexual Assault of Patient

Los Angeles: A general practitioner medical doctor was arrested this morning after a year-long investigation involving the sexual assault of a patient.

On July 8, 2008, at around 9:30 a.m., Kevin Antario Brown, 37-years of age, was arrested on a $50,000 arrest warrant that was obtained by detectives from Robbery Homicide Division, Rape Special Section, upon conclusion of the year-long investigation. 

In June 2007 an 18-year-old female reported to police that during a medical examination by Dr. Brown she was inappropriately touched.  As a result of this report, detectives assigned to Detective Support and Vice Division, and Robbery Homicide Division, conducted an undercover operation.  During the operation a female undercover operator posing as a patient was also inappropriately touched during a medical exam.

Detectives presented the case to the Los Angeles District Attorney's Sex Crime Unit, resulting in the $50,000 warrant being issued and multiple felony and misdemeanor charges being filed.  The charges against Dr. Brown relate to sexual battery by fraud and sexual exploitation by a physician.  Dr. Brown was taken into custody without incident by Fugitive Warrant Section.

Dr. Brown had been practicing medicine at the Crenshaw Expo Medical Center, 3631 Crenshaw Boulevard, Los Angeles.

Detectives believe there may be additional victims or witnesses and are asking for anyone with information about this case, or additional information about similar crimes involving Dr. Brown to call Detective Monica Cross or Lieutenant Felicia Hall, Robbery-Homicide Division at 213-485-2921.  On weekends and off hours call the toll free number at 1-877-LAWFULL.
