Another police complaint has reportedly been filed against Prof. Arie Levine, the senior doctor arrested Sunday on suspicion of multiple sex offenses against female patients in his care, including at least one minor.

According to the Walla news site, multiple additional women have stepped forward with allegations of sexual assault since Levine’s name was cleared for publication in the press earlier this week.

At least one other woman has filed a police complaint, the report says.

At a hearing at the Tel Aviv Magistrate’s Court earlier this week, Levine, 64, was remanded for four days. He will be brought back to court tomorrow for an additional hearing on his remand.

Levine, who is director of the Pediatric Gastroenterology and Nutrition Unit at Holon’s Wolfson Medical Center and practices at a private clinic, has denied wrongdoing.

Police said Monday that among his suspected crimes, committed over a number of years, was the rape of a girl under the age of 14.
