A REALITY TV doctor and his girlfriend have been arrested in California for drugging and raping two women — and authorities suspect there could be hundreds more Victims!
Grant Robicheaux, 38, an orthopedic surgeon who appeared on Bravo’s Online Dating Rituals of the American Male, and Carissa Riley are Charged with rape by use of drugs, oral copulation by anesthesia or controlled substance, and other crimes. Twelve new possible Victims have come forward, and more than 50 people have called investigators with information on the coldhearted couple, according to authorities.
To fuel their fetish, Riley, 31, would approach women at a bar or restaurant and then invite her boyfriend over, Orange County District Attorney Tony Rackauckas says. The doctor used his boyish good looks to charm the pair’s victims, police charge. The DA. says Riley and Robicheaux met one woman, 32, at a restaurant in Newport Beach in April 2016 who they then invited to a party and took back to Robicheaux’s apartment once she was intoxicated. Afterward, they drugged and raped the woman, with the entire incident recorded on Video, he says. The woman contacted Newport Beach police the next day and tested positive for multiple controlled substances.Six months later, prosecutors say another woman claimed the couple sexually assaulted her at the same apartment after she got drunk at a bar with them. The district attorney’s office says she woke up and screamed for help until a neighbor called cops to the scene.
Investigators found more than 1,000 videos on Robicheaux’s phone, including hundreds of clips of women in various states of consciousness, Rackauckas says. Some of the women “appear to be highly intoxicated beyond the ability to consent or resist, and they’re barely responsive to the defendant’s sexual advances,” he adds. Many of the videos also included Riley, he notes. Two of the new possible victims tell police they were assaulted by the pair in other states. Authorities note the couple traveled to festivals such as Burning Man in Nevada, the Dirtybird Campout in central California and the Splash House in Palm Springs. Attorneys for the suspects say they did nothing criminal. After their arrest on Sept. 11, both were released on $100,000 bail each.
