Federal police have arrested a Toronto doctor in connection with an alleged sexual assault. National Post reported that Dr. Luis Jaquez was arrested at a residence in a seaside neighbourhood near Toronto’s harbour. Police would not release the location or the suspect’s name as the investigation was ongoing. They also did not confirm the nature of the alleged victim’s allegations.
According to National Post, Jaquez allegedly faces one count of “sodomy or oral copulation involving a person incapable of consent or who has actual mental illness of a diagnosed type and a head injury or a history of severe migraines.”
The alleged victim in the case claims she met the doctor through a lifestyle website, according to an audio recording leaked to Post’s website. Jaquez allegedly sent the victim a link to a cryptocurrency deal, and afterwards, she drank one vodka and chugged the alcohol with the doctor and another man.
When the woman claims to Jaquez that she was too drunk to consent, Jaquez allegedly offered her the opportunity to go to the U.S. with him, but she says she declined because she was underage. That’s when the alleged victim states Jaquez asked her to provide oral sex to him, and that’s when she believes he was incapable of consenting.
One of Jaquez’s friends, Neema Sabir, who worked for the doctor, denied that the doctor assaulted the woman.
“He’s innocent. He was with her at that home, and at no time did he force her into oral sex,” Sabir told Post. “Everything was consensual. He didn’t even ask her if she was of age.”
