Eye Doc Accused Of Sexually Assaulting Teen Patient

ROSEVILLE (WWJ) – A Macomb County optometrist is scheduled to be arraigned Friday on charges of sexually assaulting a young patient during an exam.

WWJ’s Pat Vitale reports the Macomb County Prosecutor’s Officer has issued a two-count sexual assault warrant for Danny Brikho, a staff optometrist at LensCrafters in Roseville’s Macomb Mall.

Brikho is accused of touching the 16-year-old girl’s mouth with his penis. Investigators say he put three drops of medicine in her eyes and told her to keep her eyes closed for several minutes. The teen says she opened her eyes when she felt something touch her lip, and found the optometrist standing on a chair next to her with his pants down.

Brikho will be arraigned in Roseville’s 39th District Court. He faces a ten-year felony as well as a two-year misdemeanor.

    This case would be interesting to see through. This article is simply lacking of any and all moral, ethical, and responsible reporting. No facts other than this guys name. Guilty until innocent! Hang em high! Or burn at the stake. Same diff.

    She should have marked the “evidence” with a bite mark!

    I don’t buy her story. I am a patient of his, he is beyond professional and respectful. She is lying. Young girls exaggerate and LIE. Think about it…. she’s sitting on the exam chair, he’s standing on a stool. How would his genitals reach her face? He would be too far from her face. If your eyes are closed, and you hear someone unzip their pants IN YOUR EAR, wouldnt you quickly open your eyes? Yea, exactly. She’s lying. Her eyes were dilated, how can she see specific objects? I’ve been in that office, and those stools are short, and so is the Doctor. There is no way he can reach her face. Common sense, people!
