O'FALLON, MO. - A St. Charles County doctor was accused of assaulting two women, both patients. Investigators are asking for any other potential victims to come forward.
O'Fallon, Missouri police arrested Dr. Howard Setzer, 39. He is charged with second-degree sexual abuse and second-degree attempted sodomy. The incidents occurred on Progress Point Parkway, where there is a medical building.
"Sometimes people are afraid to come forward. If there was someone, if there was an incident, we're urging them to come forward and let us know," said O'Fallon Police Officer Diana Damke
When Five on Your Side contacted Mid-County Orthopedic, spokesman Joel James refused to confirm whether Setzer was or is currently employed there.
But he did release the following statement:
"The physicians and staff at Mid-County Orthopaedic have a long history of providing excellent medical care and will certainly cooperate with any investigation by law enforcement. We have not been contacted by law enforcement at this time and because of privacy laws, Signature certainly cannot speculate or comment on any patient matters."
