The Sacramento County Sheriff Sexual Assault Bureau made an arrest of a licensed physician after an investigation into a patient’s complaint revealed evidence of a sexual assault during a medical evaluation.
Logan Vincent Ford, 31, was arrested in Oakland, California yesterday (August 18, 2015), on charges involving rape, sexual assault and sexual exploitation by a physician. He is currently being held at the Sacramento County Jail on one million dollars bail.
In March of 2015, the victim visited a medical marijuana evaluation center, located in the 2100 block of Watt Avenue, in order to obtain a medical marijuana prescription. During the medical examination, the victim reported that Ford sexually assaulted her. The investigation eventually led to Ford’s arrest in Oakland on an arrest warrant signed by the Sacramento County District Attorney’s Office. Ford is believed to have worked at two additional offices in Oakland and Berkeley, California.
Detectives are asking the public to come forward with any additional information pertaining to suspicious or criminal behavior during the course of Logan Vincent Ford’s practice, and to contact the Sheriff’s Sexual Assault Bureau at (916) 874-5070.
