MONROE, Mich. (WXYZ) – Dr. Abdullahi Mohamed, who is a psychiatrist, is accused of having inappropriate sexual contact with 8 of his patients.

In May, he was charged with criminal sexual conduct after police say one of his female patients came forward. Since that news broke, police say other female patients came forward with similar allegations.

“He’s not just a doctor, he’s a mental health professional. Usually people that to come to a mental health professional already have some issues so they’re compounded by the fact that the person they trust the most with their most intimate issues has now betrayed that trust,” says MSP Trooper David Boike.

Police say Mohamed has been a psychiatrist for about a decade and that he spent most of his time working in Monroe. They say some patients had been going to him for more than a year without any problems, but for some reason in January his behavior changed.

On Wednesday, he was charged with 13 counts of criminal sexual conduct which police say includes many cases of fondling.

He has also been charged with assault. Police say in that case, a woman resisted his advances and he tore her dress.

7 Action News spoke with Mohamed’s attorney, but he had no comment. Meanwhile, Mohamed says he is no longer working. He is out on bond.

Lawsuit filed against Dr. charged with sex abuse

Monroe psychiatrist Dr. Abdullahi Mohamed is accused of sexually assaulting his patients. Now one of them is filing a civil suit for ten million dollars.

The 26-year-old mother of two is actually the first patient who came forward in the criminal case which lists up to eight other women.

Holly Hord of Newport says she’s been a patient of Monroe psychiatrist Abdullahi Mohamed for years. But six months ago she says their appointments at Mercy Nursing Center , operated by Mercy Memorial Hospital turned sexual. The hospital has no affiliation with Mercy Health Systems in Toledo.

“His behavior just made a complete switch. I trusted him completely with my life to give me medicine that’s supposed to make me better.”

In May, Hord says the touching turned to intercourse at the doctor’s office. She contacted the state police and other alleged victims came forward.

According to Hord’s attorney Gregory Rohl, Mohamed is, “a psychiatrist predator who has visited upon at least nine known victims of sexual assault in the confines of a therapeutic relationship.”

The 58-year-old is facing criminal sexual charges in Monroe County. He’s free on $100,000 bond.

The trial is expected to begin in August in Monroe County.
