Western Pa. doctor accused of indecent assault

PITTSBURGH (AP) — A western Pennsylvania doctor has been accused of inappropriately touching two female patients at his Pittsburgh-area office.

Authorities said 59-year-old Dr. Raja Chakrapani of Fox Chapel is charged with misdemeanor counts of indecent assault and harassment.

Lt. Jeffrey Korczyk said authorities began investigating after the woman alleged that he inappropriately touched them during office visits between August 2012 and last month.

A woman who answered the phone at Chakrapani’s office said he was being represented by attorney Patrick Thomassey, who did not immediately return a call seeking comment.
