Southern California surgeon and accomplice charged with drugging, raping women

Robicheaux, who appeared on Bravo show Online Dating Rituals of the American Male has been charged with drugging, sexually assaulting and raping two women.

The surgeon, 38-year-old Grant William Robicheaux, and his 31-year-old girlfriend, Cerissa Laura Riley, were charged on September 11 with rape as well as drug and weapons-related offences in connection with two alleged assaults.

Robicheaux is known for treating multiple sponsored athletes and for being featured on the 2014 Bravo TV show "Online Dating Rituals of the American Male", while Riley is a teacher.

In April 2016, officials said the pair met a 32-year-old woman at a Newport Beach restaurant and invited her to a boat party, but they took her to Robicheaux's apartment once she was intoxicated before assaulting her. Charges include rape by use of drugs, oral copulation by anesthesia or controlled substance, among others. "We've all heard of a wolf dressed up in sheep's clothing - well, a wolf can also wears scrubs or doctor's clothing, or a wolf can be a handsome woman".

Messages to Robicheaux's attorney, Philip Cohen, and Riley's attorney, Scott Borthwick, were not immediately returned.

Dr Grant William Robicheaux billed himself as an elite orthopaedic surgeon catering to the famous and wealthy in the USA state of California.

The district attorney called for other women who may have been the victims of the defendants to contact his office, even if they aren't certain a crime was committed against them.

The two victims named in the case were not patients of Robicheaux.

The county's top prosecutor assured any other women who may have encountered the pair that just because they may have imbibed heavily it "doesn't give (the suspects) a pass to rape or sexually assault when you're past the point of consent".

Prosecutors say Robicheaux and Riley may have traveled together to various festivals and locations since 2015, including Burning Man, the Dirtybird Campout festival and the Splash House festival in Palm Springs.

Months later, the two defendants victimized another woman after meeting her at a Newport Beach bar and taking her to the apartment after she passed out from intoxication.

Orange County District Attorney Tony Rackauckas said that the victims "might have felt a false sense of security" around the pair because they are "clean-cut and good looking".

That woman told police she had been drinking at a bar in Newport Beach with the couple until she lost consciousness. Or the wolf can be a lovely woman'.

Robicheaux and Riley are also charged with possessing large quantities of drugs.

If convicted, Mr Robicheaux and Ms Riley could spend 40 years and 30 years in prison respectively, said the prosecutor. The second defendant being a female was key.

At this time, Orange County investigators are asking people to come forward if they believe they may have been a victim of Grant Robicheaux and Cerissa Riley. Investigators have about 1,000 of these videos on the suspects' phones and are trying to match the victims' faces with names. Both have been released on $100,000 bail each, and are scheduled to appear in court next month.

The two are free on $100,000 bond and are due to be arraigned October 24.
