Report: Delilah Bar-Goer Accuses NYPD Surgeon of Rape

Posted on: October 31st, 2017 at 5:04 am by

A woman this week accused an NYPD surgeon of raping her in his Brooklyn apartment Saturday night after the two met at Delilah on Rivington Street, police said.

According to the report filed in the Daily News, the unnamed victim reportedly “fell ill” at the Lower East Side bar, and was offered a ride home by the cop. The woman alleges that she was instead taken to his apartment and raped.

More from the article:

The woman called a friend, who knew the doctor and said that he didn’t seem like the type of person to commit sexual assault. Still, the pal told her to get out of the apartment and call 911, which she did, donning a bathrobe as she left, sources said.

Cops interviewed the woman and the doctor Sunday night, and released him from custody, according to the sources. The doctor’s name was not released and the investigation was continuing, police sources said.

Police sources said the doctor is an honorary police surgeon — one of a multitude of specialists the department calls upon when officers or their relatives are injured.

This incident further stains the reputation of Delilah, the year-old St. Jerome’s replacement that some have dubbed “DL Lite.” Co-owned by Paul Seres, the establishment is another top noise offender in the Hell Square environs. Sleep-deprived tenants in the vicinity attest to that, and the 311 data seemingly acts as confirmation. Open data shows more than thirty 311 noise complaints since its opening in November 2016.
