SACRAMENTO COUNTY —
The Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department arrested a licensed physician Tuesday after an investigation revealed evidence of sexual assault during a medical evaluation, the department said.
Logan Vincent Ford, 31, was arrested Tuesday on charges involving rape, sexual assault and sexual exploitation by a physician. Ford is being held at the Sacramento County Jail on $1 million bail.
In March, a woman says she visited a medical marijuana evaluation center on the 2100 block of Watt Avenue so she could obtain a medical marijuana prescription, investigators said. During the examination, the victim reported that Ford had sexually assaulted her.
The investigation eventually led to Ford’s arrest in Oakland. Ford is believed to have worked at two other offices in Oakland and Berkeley.
Detectives are asking the public to come forward with any additional information pertaining to suspicious or criminal behavior during the course of Ford’s practice, and to contact the Sheriff’s Sexual Assault Bureau at (916) 874-5070.
