LOS ANGELES -- (KTLA) -- The Los Angeles Police Department revealed Tuesday afternoon that 52 patients of former USC gynecologist George Tyndall have come forward accusing him of sexual misconduct.
The doctor is thought to have seen more than 10,000 patients, according to police. The 52 women will participate in the department’s ongoing investigation into whether multiple allegations of sexual harassment and other misconduct against the doctor constitute actual criminal conduct.
Thirty-nine of those 52 patients initially contacted USC’s hotline, which was created through the university's Title IX program. Those women, according to the LAPD, were willing to release their information to the department. The other 13 women contacted LAPD directly through phone and email to express concerns about their previous contact with Tyndall, authorities said.
And authorities believe there could be more possible victims.
