YAKIMA, Wash.-- A Yakima doctor is now accused of raping two women. One is a patient, the other a co-worker. A total of three women say the internal medicine doctor touched them inappropriately.

Detectives don't think they're done tracking down alleged victims of Doctor Fady Sabry. He was already behind bars after a patient said she'd been raped during a pelvic exam. The doctor was back in court Monday facing new charges with two new alleged victims. One of indecent liberties and another second degree rape.

"It's not really uncommon to see other people finally get the courage to come forward," YPD Captain Rod Light said.

The two women only went to Yakima Police after hearing Sabry had been arrested. They both worked at a medical clinic and worried they'd be fired if they reported a crime.

"They had a tremendous amount of fear of reporting as to whether or not they were going to be believed, if they were going to lose their job, if they were going to lose their income," Light said.

Sabry is a doctor of internal medicine, not a gynecologist. Court papers say he performed a pelvic exam when a patient asked for a medication refill. She claims she was asked to expose herself while on her hands and knees.

"If a doctor tells you, your medical doctor tells you to do something in an office, you're more than likely going to comply, expecting you're going to be treated with dignity, and unfortunately in this case that doesn't appear to be what happened," Light said.

One of the new alleged victims said she witnessed suspicious behavior with other patients. YPD is continuing the investigation.

Sabry last worked at Central Washington Internal Medicine. Nobody from the clinic wanted to speak with KIMA. Police tell us it has been cooperating with the investigation.
