Years after a doctor was accused of sexually assaulting his wife, a husband confronted the man in front of his medical peers with an assault of his own caught on video: “You’re lucky this is America.”
Saturday May 20, the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology (ACOG) was midway through their Annual Clinical & Scientific Meeting in Baltimore, Maryland to discuss cutting-edge research and clinical best practices. The latter was of the utmost concern to one man who rushed the stage to physically confront a doctor he said assaulted his wife at a Long Island, New York practice.
“This motherf*cker sexually assaulted my wife seven years ago,” the enraged husband could be heard shouting in the video viewed over 1.7 million times as he held the doctor by the jacket and the audience gasped. Without wasting time, the husband slapped the doctor before asserting, “You know what you did…you touched my wife seven years ago in New York.”

The profanity laced tirade continued after a second slap was delivered and the husband joined his wife off stage as the two began to walk out of the gathering.
As the doctor appeared ignorant of the claims being leveled against him, the man continued, “Don’t be an a**hole motherf*cker…[if] this was in Brazil, I’d kill you. You’re lucky this is America.”
The couple had nearly left the room when the man continued undeterred by threats of security, “Seven years I waited for this. Seven years my wife is suffering because you are a f*cking predator.”
His rage evidently drew a laugh from the doctor, stirring the husband to storm back to the stage and threaten repeatedly, “Laugh one more time.”
Outside the conference, the husband and wife could be seen talking with security guards where she explained that she had reported the doctor at the time of the incident. When the two walked off, one of the guard’s contended “There’s a better way to handle it,” earning more wrath from the man.
“There’s a better way to do? He sexually assaulted my wife, there’s a better way to do?” he repeated before ultimately walking off.

A spokesperson for the Baltimore police provided a statement to WMAR that said, “The assaulted individual stated that he did not want to file criminal charges or file a report against the individual who physically assaulted him and that he would prefer the individual be escorted off the premises.”
Meanwhile, the ACOG posted to social media, “We are aware of a recent video posted of an incident that occurred at ACOG’s Annual Clinical & Scientific Meeting. We want to make clear that we take every measure possible to create a safe environment for our members and do not tolerate violence of any kind.”
“We recognize that those who witnessed the incident in person or online may have experienced trauma as a result, including many of you who have experienced sexual assault or other violence in the past,” with no mention of the alleged assault experienced by the wife.

However, they did go on to add to WMAR, “We have strong, clear statements and policies in opposition to harassment, including sexual harassment at ACOG and in any professional setting. We cannot provide additional details because of confidentiality obligations and would refer you to the appropriate legal authorities for anything further.”
Stony Brook University Medical Center, where it was confirmed the doctor practices medicine, released their own statement that said, “We take the matter concerning recent allegations against one of our physicians seriously. Stony Brook University officials are reviewing the circumstances and taking the necessary measures to address any issues resulting from this incident.”
Many on social media lauded the husband for his actions and in particular for calling out the alleged sexual assault in public.
IT WAS THE PERFECT PLACE AND TIME. They reported it and nothing was done. Hospitals protect doctors, and bury reports like this. Someone might actually pay attention now.
