BOSTON (AP) - A 44-year-old Massachusetts man has filed a lawsuit alleging that he was molested as a boy by a junior doctor at Tufts Medical Center in 1983.

The Boston Globe reports (https://bit.ly/2caUUga ) the suit, filed Monday in Suffolk Superior Court, states that Dr. William Richard Bonner befriended the man when he was an 11-year-old patient at what was then New England Medical Center.

The man claims that Bonner, a doctor in training at the time, molested him during several unsupervised exams at an outpatient clinic for follow-up care.

Bonner is now a pediatric anesthesiologist at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. He declined to comment.

The lawsuit also names Tufts Medical Center as a defendant. Tufts officials say the man’s allegations “were not substantiated” in a 1984 investigation. No further details were offered.
