Bail conditions modified for doctor charged with sexually assaulting woman in car

A Bannockburn man has been accused of sexually assaulting a female co-worker in his car following a 2019 business dinner in Oak Brook

Dr. Arkan Alrashid has been charged with two counts of criminal sexual assault. He turned himself in Sept. 17 at the Oak Brook Police Department, posted $5,000, and was released.

DuPage County Judge Alex McGimpsey Monday granted the state’s petition to modify Alrashid’s conditions of bail which, among other additional conditions, now require the defendant to:

• Have no contact with the victim or her family.

• Surrender any firearms, firearm ammunition, FOID card or other dangerous weapons.

• Surrender any passports.

Conditions of bail placed on Alrashid prior to Monday’s hearing required only that he notify the DuPage County Circuit Clerk’s Office within 24 hours of changing residency, that he not violate any criminal statute of any jurisdiction and that he not leave the state of Illinois without permission of the court.

Alrashid on Feb. 12, 2019, allegedly met the woman and others at a restaurant in Oak Brook for a business presentation dinner. Following the dinner, Alrashid and the woman traveled together in Alrashid’s car to his house where the victim had left her car. During the drive home, Alrashid allegedly sexually assaulted the woman.

“It is alleged that following a business presentation with a former co-worker, Dr. Alrashid sexually assaulted his victim as they drove together in his car,” DuPage County State’s Attorney Robert Berlin said in a statement.“These allegations are extremely disturbing and will be met with the full force of the law.”

Alrashid’s next court appearance is scheduled for Nov. 4 for arraignment.
