An acupuncture doctor from Matawan has been accused of sexually assaulting one of his patients.
Monmouth County prosecutors say Jeng Kuan, 57, was criminally charged after the Matawan Police Department received a report last month regarding the sexual assault of a female victim who recently had an acupuncture appointment with him at the Prosperity Health Center.
Officials say Kuan, who is also a resident of Matawan, was charged with one count of second-degree sexual assault and one count of fourth-degree criminal sexual contact.
Kuan was arrested Thursday. He’s being lodged at the Monmouth County Correctional Institution pending his first appearance in Monmouth County Superior Court on Wednesday.
Investigators are also seeking additional information about Kuan’s activities. Anyone with information should contact Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office Detective Joseph Mason at 800-533-7443 or Matawan Police Department Detective Michael Denino at 732-290-2038.
