A patient accused a Jersey Shore GYN of inappropriately touching her after an exam, and local prosecutors charged the doctor with harassment.
Police said an investigation led to the charges after a woman reported that Dr. Alfred B. Parchment inappropriately touched her after an examination at Brick Women's Physicians, Obstetrics and Gynecology. Police arrested Parchment, 53, of Toms River, for the charge on Tuesday.
The charge is a "disorderly persons" offense for harassment by offensive touching, according to a news release from the Ocean County Prosecutor's Office, and Parchment was released with a summons to appear in court in Brick Township at a later date. Officials said they notified the New Jersey State Board of Medical Examiners of the charge.
