DOYLESTOWN, Pa. (AP) - A psychiatrist in southeastern Pennsylvania has been accused of fondling three patients.

The Bucks County district attorney’s office said 42-year-old Dr. Basem Shlewiet of Buckingham was arrested late Thursday afternoon and charged with multiple counts of corruption of minors, indecent assault and unlawful contact with a minor.

It couldn’t immediately be determined if he had an attorney.

Doylestown police said they received reports from three separate young women from April to December 2013 alleging Shlewiet touched them inappropriately in his Doylestown office.

The district attorney’s office is asking anyone else who believes they have been subject to inappropriate contact with Shlewiet to contact police.
