An Avon doctor was arrested Wednesday and charged with sexually assaulting at least two of his patients, and police say there may be more victims. 

Avon police arrested Khosro Pourkavoos, 51, of 18 Terrace Drive, Avon, on Jan. 22 on two warrants. In one case, Pourkavoos is charged with second-degree sexual assault, a Class C felony, and fourth-degree sexual assault, a Class A misdemeanor. In the second case involving a different patient, he is charged with two counts of fourth-degree sexual assault.

Pourkavoos is licensed in Connecticut as a family medicine physician. His medical practice is located at 35 Nod Road in Avon. 

Avon police launched an investigation into Pourkavoos after a woman filed a complaint that her doctor had sexually assaulted her during medical office visits. During the subsequent investigation, police identified "other potential female patients" of Pourkavoos whom he may have sexually assaulted, according to a news release from the Avon Police Department. 

Police located a second victim through information about her they found online. The woman provided police with a "sworn statement" alleging Pourkavoos sexually assaulted her during doctor's appointments, police said.

Both alleged victims are "of age," police said. Police have not made contact with any other victims at this time.

The court set Pourkavoos' bond at $150,000 — $75,000 for each case — and he was released after posting it. Pourkavoos is scheduled to appear in court on Feb. 5.
