NORTH LAS VEGAS (KSNV & MyNews3)—A doctor was arrested Thursday for allegedly sexually assaulting a 68-year-old patient her room, according to North Las Vegas Police.

Doctor Mane Shah, 34, of Las Vegas faces one count of sexual assault and one count of open and gross lewdness after accusations surfaced accusing him of assaulting a woman during a physical exam, police said.

The investigation began on Nov. 2, 2012 when a North Vista Hospital official called police on a patient’s behalf to report the crime, according to police.

Shah was the victim’s attending physician during her inpatient stay at the hospital, police said.

On Thursday North Las Vegas Police arrested Shah on a warrant issued by the Clark County District Attorney’s office.

Shah is a contracted doctor who has admitting privileges at North Vista Hospital, St. Rose Dominican Hospital, Sunrise Hospital and Mountain View Hospital, police said.

Police urge anyone with information in this ongoing investigation to call the North Las Vegas Police Department at 633-9111 or Crimestoppers at 385-5555 to remain anonymous.

PAHOA, HAWAII - OCTOBER 26:  In this handout provided by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), A portion of the front of the June 27th lava flow burns through thick vegetation and a fence on October 26, 2014 in Pahoa, Hawaii. Scientists of the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory conducted ground and air observations of the lava flow from the Kilauea Volcano and determined that it was 510 meters (560 yards) upslope from Pa-hoa Village Road and the flow width was about 50 meters (55 yards) at the leading edge. Molten rock from the flow is inching its way towards homes in the town of Pahoa on Hawaii's Big Island where close to a thousand people live.  (Photo by USGS via Getty Images) (Handout, 2014 USGS)
