Chambersburg doctor secretly photographed patient, police say

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. (WHTM) — Police say a Franklin County doctor photographed a patient without her knowledge before his conviction this year on sexual assault charges.

State police in Chambersburg want to hear from former patients of Sohael Raschid because additional photographs have been found.

Raschid, 60, is a former obstetrician and gynecologist convicted of drugging and sexually assaulting three women and a teenage girl. He was found guilty in March of slipping date-rape drugs into drinks and sexually assaulting the victims in 2014 and 2015. He is serving 30 to 95 years in prison for assaulting the women, mostly at his Hamilton Township home.

Police now say Raschid secretly photographed a 35-year-old woman during an August 2015 gynecological visit to Phoenix Wellness on Kennebec Drive in Chambersburg. The additional photographs were found during the investigation, and charges are pending.

“For any female that went to this wellness center and did see this doctor, if there is concern, please contact the troopers in Chambersburg because there’s lots of material that they’re going through right now,” Trooper Brent Miller said. “They’re still looking for more victims.”

If you were a patient of Raschid, police encourage you to call Trooper Pattillo in Chambersburg at 717-264-5161 and reference incident #HO3-2374164.
