A doctor who shot a stray dog while drunk and set fire to his neighbours’ homes and cars has now been arrested for giving a COVID-19 patient sleeping pills and raping her after she woke up in hospital without any underwear on.
The general practitioner, who has been named in local media reports as 46-year-old Baris Yagci, works as a doctor in the emergency department of the Usak Training and Research Hospital in the city of Usak in western Turkey.
The GP, who reportedly has priors for having killed a stray dog with a rifle while drunk in 2020 and for having set fire to his neighbours’ cars and houses, has now been arrested for raping a female patient he was examining.
The 21-year-old woman, who has been named only as Yagmur G., went to hospital after falling sick.
Staff determined that she might have been infected with COVID-19, and she was referred to the Pandemic Emergency Service. The doctor reportedly had the patient taken to his room and given pills.
The young woman, who reportedly fell unconscious due to the effect of the drugs, woke up in hospital the next morning and realised that she was not wearing any underwear.
The woman reportedly realised she had been allegedly raped, and she left the room without waking the doctor, who was fast asleep on the sofa.
The young woman reported the incident to the prosecutor’s office, and the doctor was arrested.
A blood test was performed, and it was determined that the doctor had given her a drug, which was unspecified in local reports.
It is currently unclear if the suspect has been charged at the time of writing.
