A doctor who appeared on Bravo reality show Online Dating Rituals of the American Male has been accused of teaming up with a woman believed to be his girlfriend to drug, sexually assault and rape women.
Law enforcement asked possible victims to come forward on Tuesday after Grant William Robicheaux and Cerissa Laura Riley were charged in early September.
The charges against Robicheaux and Riley were announced two years after a couple of alleged victims from Newport Beach shared their stories of sexual abuse.
The accounts appear to be corroborated by pictures and videos found on the couple’s phones that suggest they could have taken advantage of up to 1,000 women.

Robicheaux, 38, is an orthopedic surgeon in California’s affluent Orange County.
The doctor and Riley, 31, have been accused of committing ‘rape by use of drugs, oral copulation by anesthesia or a controlled substance, assault with intent to commit sexual offense and four counts of possession of a controlled substance for sale,’ reports KTLA.
On top of those charges, both defendants could face further punishment for illegally possessing firearms.
Riley and Robicheaux are said to be a couple, authorities believe, have taken advantage and molested over 1,000 women in situations similar to that experienced by the 2016 complainants
Other charges against the two allege large amounts of illegal drugs were found in Robicheaux’s residence in January 2018.
Rackauckas said that the duo are suspected of preying on women at bars and either getting them intoxicated with large amounts of alcohol or using drugs to put them in a state where they were no longer able to take control.

Both accusers say the incidents happened in 2016. One victim claimed she was invited to a party after meeting them at a restaurant in April.
The woman tested positive for multiple drugs the following day after she complained to Newport Beach law enforcement that she was drugged and raped.
Another woman claimed she was taken back to Robicheaux’s apartment in October that year after falling unconscious due to consuming copious amounts of alcohol.
She alleges the pair sexually assaulted her and intended to rape her before she woke up and screamed for help.
The woman claims a neighbor contacted law enforcement who investigated the matter.
Large amounts of illegal substances were found on Robicheaux’s property in January this year according to ABC7.
The pair who are avid festival-goers were finally arrested last Wednesday after local police submitted a request to the DA on September 6.Investigators are trying to find out whether any of Robicheaux’s patients were victims and are concerned people they met at Burning Man and Splash House Festival may have fallen victim.
Robicheaux is known for appearing on one episode of the Bravo dating show, titled ‘Three’s a Crowd’, but the show only lasted for one season in 2014.
