doctor has been arrested in Chengdu for allegedly raping a woman after putting her to sleep.
According to a friend of the victim, the incident occurred at 8 am on May 10th when the woman went to a privately-run hospital in Chengdu’s Shuangliu district for treatment for her underarm odor. The friend said that the victim told him that an hour after being put under, she awoke feeling as if she had been raped.
The woman then confronted the doctor who said that he wanted to settle the matter privately. She rejected that proposal and upon leaving the hospital she immediately called the police.
