Share this post

Reports say bond was set at 25-thousand dollars for a northwest Indiana doctor accused of sexually assaulting a patient at his Valparaiso office.   Police in Valparaiso this week arrested Dr. Jose Agusti of Chicago on felony charges of sexual battery and criminal deviate conduct.  Officials say a female subject advised Dr. Agusti had groped and touched her in an inappropriate sexual manner during a scheduled appointment, and that during the same appointment he is also accused of exposing himself to her. Following a lengthy investigation, an arrest warrant was served Thursday at the doctor's office on South Valparaiso street, and he was taken to the Porter County Jail. Police say the alleged assault took place at that office. Today's Times reports prosecutors expect additional investigation of other possible victims.
