McKinney Surgeon Arrested for Sexual Assault: Police

An orthopedic surgeon in Collin County has been charged with two counts of felony sexual assault, police said.

McKinney police said they arrested Dr. Donald Okechukwu Ozumba at his office, OSSM Orthopedics, on March 31. It is in the 8000 block of State Highway 121 in McKinney, which is where police said the alleged assaults took place.

According to an arrest warrant affidavit, two victims have filed reports with McKinney police.

The first alleged incident occurred in August 2016, according to the affidavit. A woman reported she went to the doctor to receive a shot for a physical disability. She had seen the doctor twice before, but during her third appointment she reported that she was touched inappropriately.

The woman filed a report with police two days later and told detectives that she "was embarrassed and thought she should have known better about what to do during the incident."

The second alleged incident occurred last Tuesday, according to the affidavit. A woman said she went to the doctor to be treated for a sports injury and was touched inappropriately when receiving injections.

She told investigators that she called her doctor after leaving Ozumba's office and asked if what happened during her procedure was normal. Her doctor told her "absolutely not."

According to the affidavit, the woman's husband was sitting behind the doctor and could not see what was happening.

The woman also reported that Ozumba sent her a message later, "asking her what her favorite part of the procedure was."

Ozumba, a board-certified orthopedic surgeon specializing in sports medicine, has offices in McKinney, Rockwall and Dallas.

Investigators are encouraging anyone who feels like are a victim of Ozumba to contact Det. Grounds at 972-547-2727 or jgrounds@mckinneytexas.org.

Ozumba's bond was set at $50,000. He was released from the Collin County Jail on Sunday.

In a statement released to NBC 5, Ozumba family spokesperson Laura Barnett said, "We flatly deny each and every false allegation and are confident that the legal system will vindicate Dr. Ozumba. We appreciate the support from our local and global community."
