Police: Middletown doctor sexually abused 2 patients

Posted: Updated:

Police have arrested a Middletown doctor on charges that he sexually assaulted two patients earlier this year.

Dr. Valapet Sridaran is accused of inappropriate contact with the two patients in August and September of this year.

Many residents say they are disturbed by the alleged actions of the doctor.

Police are asking anyone else who may be a victim to come forward.

Sridaran has been charged with two misdemeanors so far, and, if convicted, could lose his medical license. He would likely not face jail time.
