A Manhattan doctor says a colleague sexually assaulted her by giving her pills and having her massage her during her maternity leave.
Nadia Karras says she and her colleague, a OB-gynecologist at Manhattan’s St. Luke’s Hospital, met up to have sex on Dec. 2 and then went to bed together on Dec 20.
Karras, who has been a New York City physician for nearly four decades, says she woke up in the middle of the night Dec. 21, and she told her co-worker about what happened.
Karrs told her colleague that she didn’t want to go to the hospital, but he insisted on having sex with her.
Kachkar says she told him that it was against hospital policy to have vaginal sex.
When she told the nurse, she says she became more and more upset and worried about what she was going to do to her baby, and that she felt like her boss was threatening her.
The nurse, who Karrans says is now retired, allegedly told Karrays boss to stop touching her and to call a lawyer, and he allegedly told her he would report Karraras.
She says she left the hospital shortly afterward and reported her concerns to the police.
The NYPD says that, since the allegations against Karrases boss first surfaced in a complaint by a woman, detectives have investigated her allegations and have interviewed her.
No charges have been filed.
KARRAS says she is not seeking financial compensation for her allegations.
She also says that the sexual encounters occurred in her office, not the hospital.
