PHYSICIAN WAMEED ATEYAH CHARGED WITH SEXUAL ASSAULTS IN TOWNSHIP OF KING

York – Investigators with the York Regional Police Special Victims Unit – Sexual Assault Section, have charged a 49-year-old doctor in connection with seven sexual assaults that occurred on two victims at a medical clinic in the Township of King.

The investigation began in August 2020, when two victims, a 49-year-old and 28-year-old female came forward to report that they had been sexually assaulted by their doctor during visits to their medical clinic. The investigation revealed that from 2008 to 2017, the victims had attended appointments at the Schomberg Medical Centre, located at 17250 Highway 27. During the appointments they were sexually assaulted by their doctor.

Investigators believe that this doctor practiced at the Schomberg Medical Centre as well as other clinics in southern Ontario and want to ensure that there are no further victims. Anyone with information is asked to come forward.

A sexual assault includes any non-consensual contact of a sexual nature. York Regional Police would like to encourage anyone who feels they may have been a victim of a sexual assault to come forward and report the incident to police. There is no statute of limitations for sexual offences and offenders can be prosecuted well after the date of the offence.

Anyone with information is asked to call the York Regional Police Special Victims Unit – Sexual Assault Section, at 1-866-876-5423, ext. 7071, or contact Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-TIPS, or leave an anonymous tip online at www.1800222tips.com
