PERTH AMBOY — A doctor is accused of forcing a female patient to have sex with him against her will and groping another patient.

Dr. Gurvindra Johal, 55, is charged with four counts of criminal sexual contact and one count of sexual assault, according to the Middlesex County Prosecutor's Office. The urgent care doctor from Colonia was arrested on Saturday, Feb. 25.

Authorities say three victims have come forward.

Two women told investigators that Johal had touched them inappropriately while they were under his care at his former practice on Cornell Street in Perth Amboy.

The third victim said that Johal "had sexual intercourse with her against her will," the prosecutor's office said in a statement.

Charges were first announced against Johal on Sunday. At the time, he faced two counts of criminal sexual contact from two accusers. Prosecutors filed the additional charges on Wednesday.

The website for the Medicenter of Edison also lists Johal as its medical director. A receptionist for the facility hung up when contacted by a reporter.

The prosecutor's office said that the investigation is "active and ongoing." Authorities are asking anyone with information to contact MCPO Det. Lauren Leyva at 732-745-4499 or Perth Amboy police Detective Gina Betancourt at 732-324-3819.

Defense attorney information for Johal was unavailable.
