Surgeon who appeared on dating show charged with drugging, raping women

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

A California surgeon who once appeared on a Bravo dating show has been accused, along with his girlfriend, of drugging and raping multiple women.

Cerissa Laura Riley (left) and Grant William Robicheaux (right) are shown in photos released by the Orange County District Attorney's Office on September 18, 2018.

Robicheaux was a surgeon for the NewportCare Medical Group, but he has been removed from the company's website.

On Tuesday, prosecutors alleged that Dr. Grant William Robicheaux, 38, of Newport Beach, and his girlfriend, Cerissa Laura Riley, 31, of Brea, drugged and raped two women in 2016. He is a board-certified orthopaedic surgeon who says he repairs sponsored athletes.

But prosecutors say several thousand images on their phones suggest there could be "hundreds" more victims.

"We have all heard of a wolf dressed up in sheep's clothing", Rackauckas said. Well, a wolf can wear scrubs or doctor's clothing. Or the wolf can be a attractive woman'. "It appears they are highly intoxicated beyond the ability to consent or resist, they are barely responsive to the defendants' sexual advances".

Authorities say women met the pair during social encounters where they became intoxicated and ended up at Robicheaux's apartment.

Riley was also charged with the same felony counts with an exception of possession of an assault weapon.

The charges come two years after two alleged victims came forward to police.

Another woman claimed she was taken back to Robicheaux's apartment in October that year after falling unconscious due to consuming copious amounts of alcohol. The second victim reportedly woke up during the assault screaming, prompting a neighbor to call the police and begin an investigation.

In a statement Wednesday, the pair's attorneys denied all allegations leveled against Robicheaux and Riley.

They are not believed to have used medical anesthetic-type of drugs, Rackauckas said.

"We don't know if (Robicheaux and Riley) videoed all of their sex acts but many are on the videos that we have not yet identified", Rackauckas continued.

Robicheaux faces 40 years in prison if convicted as charged, while Riley faces 30 years and eight months, officials said.

Messages to Robicheaux's attorney, Philip Cohen, and Riley's attorney, Scott Borthwick, were not immediately returned.

Robicheaux had two assault rifles unlawfully and while he had licences for two other guns as well as several large capacity magazines, his charges are enhanced for possessing a firearm during a health and safety code violation, says the Orange County District Attorney's Office.

"There are a substantial number of videos, I can not tell you if it is 10s or 100s, it is certainly more than 10s", the top prosecutor said in an interview.

But the district attorney's office asks that any women who think they may have been sexually assaulted by the couple contact its lead investigator, Eric Wiseman. "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".

The district attorney showed reporters video of Mr Robicheaux from a now-cancelled Bravo TV show called "Online Dating Rituals of the American Male" in an episode titled "Three's A Crowd".
