A Las Cruces psychiatrist suspected of sexually assaulting patients has been arrested. 

Mark Beale,72, was arrested Friday after officials say they investigated complaints from six patients. The victims range in ages 21 to 60 and say Beale forced them into intercourse or sexual contact dating back to 2015.

They say Beale assaulted some of the women in his office, and in at least one case at the woman’s home. 

The DEA is involved in the investigation because Beale is also suspected of prescribing medication without proper diagnosis.
