Grant William Robicheaux, a 38-year-old Orthopedic surgeon who starred on the Bravo reality TV show Online Dating Rituals of the American Male, and his girlfriend Cerissa Laura Riley, 31, have been accused of and subsequently charged for allegedly drugging, sexually assaulting and raping potentially thousands of female victims over the last few years.
According to California investigators, Riley and Robicheaux have potentially assaulted victims that they met at restaurants in Newport Beach, Burning Man, the Splash House festival and the Dirtybird Campout festival over the last couple years.
Police say videos found on the couple’s phones lead them to believe they’ve potentially taken advantage of up to 1,000 women.
Riley, 31, and Robicheaux, 38, have been charged with rape by use of drugs, assault with intent to commit a sexual offense, and possession of a controlled substance for sale.
via Orange County Register:
In April 2016 the couple met a 32-year-old woman at a Newport Beach restaurant and invited her to a party on a boat. Once she was intoxicated, prosecutors allege, the pair “escorted” the woman to Robicheaux’s apartment, supplied her with “multiple drugs” and then raped and orally copulated with her while she was too intoxicated to resist.
The 32-year-old woman contacted the Newport Beach Police Department the day after the alleged sexual encounter, and was found through a forensic examination to have multiple controlled substances in her system.
On Oct. 2, 2016, prosecutors allege Robicheaux and Riley met a woman at a Newport Beach bar, and drank with her “until the victims was no longer conscious.” They brought her back to Robicheaux’s apartment, prosecutors said, and sexually assaulted her until she woke up and screamed for help, prompting a neighbor to call police.
On Jan. 9, 2018, police searched Robicheaux’s apartment and found “large quantities of illegal drugs” – described by Rackauckas as ecstasy, date-rape drugs and cocaine – and two “illegal, unregistered assault rifles,” along with four other firearms and some large-capacity magazines, prosecutors said.
Additionally, Robicheaux is accused of possessing two illegal assault rifles, four more firearms, and several large-capacity magazines.
Orange County District Attorney Tony Rackauckas said that the victims “might have felt a false sense of security” around the pair because they are “clean-cut and good looking.”
“We have all heard of a wolf dressed up in sheep’s clothing,” Rackauckas said. “Well, a wolf can wear scrubs or doctors’ clothing. Or the wolf can be a beautiful woman,” Rackauckas said.
Robicheaux faces up to 40 years in prison and Riley faces over 30 years in prison.
Both Robicheaux and Riley scheduled to appear in court on October 25.
