PEORIA, Ariz. - A Valley dental assistant is accused of sexually abusing his patients and police are trying to find out if there are any more victims out there they don't know about.
41-year-old Oscar Castro is facing 12 counts of sexual abuse. He was booked into the 4th Avenue Jail in Phoenix.
Castro has been working as a dental assistant for about the past five years at dental practices in Phoenix and Peoria. He was arrested on March 8th by Peoria Police Department Special Victim detectives.
Officials say two women came forward and stated Castro sexually abused them multiple times in 2017 while they were being treated at a Peoria dental practice. Police used that evidence to give them probable cause to detain Castro, but they believe these two women may not be the only victims. If you have any information about this case, give them a call at (623) 773-8311.
