NEW YORK, NY – There’s doctor in New York who is in the running for the title of "Dr. Evil of the Year."

He’s David Newman, a prominent New York physician, now accused of drugging and sexually assaulting two female patients at Mt. Sinai Hospital where he is director of clinical research.

Prosecutors say Newman gave a second shot of morphine to a woman who was in the emergency room for shoulder pain. A nurse gave her the first shot.

They say when the woman was unable to move, but still conscious, he sat in front of her and masturbated. When she could finally move, she wiped off his DNA from her face and chest and gave it to police.

A second woman told police Newman groped her during an examination for a cold a few months ago.

Mt. Sinai has suspended Newman who sits in jail under a $50,000 cash bond, which may give him enough time to show his new cell mates what he can do with his hands.
