    Urgent Care Doctor Accused of Sexually Assaulting 2 More Patients
    Norwich Police
    Dr. Manoj Saxena is accused of sexually assaulting three patients.

    An urgent care doctor in Norwich who was arrested in May and accused of sexually assaulting a teenage patient is accused of sexually assaulting two more patients.

    Dr. Manoj K. Saxena, 45, of Mansfield, turned himself in on Friday at the Norwich Police Department and has been charged with second-degree sexual assault, as well as two counts of fourth-degree sexual assault.

    On May 14, police arrested Saxena after an 18-year-old patient accused him of sexually assaulting her when she went to Concentra Urgent Care to be treated after a student bit her arm, according to the prior arrest warrant application

    She told police that Saxena offered to conduct a breast exam and pap smear during the visit, then hugged her and kissed her forehead after.

    He was released from custody in that case and is due back in court on July 14, according to online court records.

    Following that arrest, detectives continued to investigate and two additional victims both said Saxena sexually assaulted them while “acting in his official capacity as a medical doctor” for Concentra Urgent Care at 10 Connecticut Avenue in Norwich.

    Saxena posted a $60,000 court set bond and is scheduled to appear at Norwich Superior Courthouse on July 16.
