A pediatrician was arrested on charges of rape after allegedly drugging and gang raping girls at a hospital, prosecutors in the United Kingdom said.
79-year-old Michael Salmon was brought before the Reading Crown Court, after being accused of gang raping a seriously ill 12-year-old girl along with two other men in a hospital bed.
Another patient told investigators that Salmon raped her after performing an illegal abortion when she was 16 years old. Other victims were assaulted while their parents sat outside the doctor’s examination room.
The court also heard how Salmon abused his position at Stoke Mandeville Hospital in Buckinghamshire. A 12-year-old patient who suffered from a genetic condition that causes tumors, was raped after being given a drug.
Salmon put the drug in her drink, and when the girl drank it she felt dizzy. Salmon and two other men raped her in a hospital room before taking her in a wheelchair back to her room.
Salmon also raped a 16-year-old girl who suffered from digestive problems. When she became pregnant, Salmon summoned her to his home where he conducted a painful abortion in his bedroom.
Minutes later, he forced her into bed and raped her. Salmon denied all the allegations, calling all his victims gold diggers.
