A MAN who identified himself as a doctor to patients in a hospital has been arrested on sexual abuse charges in southern Spain.

He is alleged to have wandered around hospital corridors without being challenged.

He would go into patients' rooms claiming he had to perform a medical examination, that's when he committed the abuse.

The man, in ihis 60s, was eventually arrested by police in Sevilla in Andalucia.

Police believe the first two incidents took place in January when women in their 80s were targeted.

In February, the husband of a woman patient reported a similar event to hospital staff.

When the fake 'doctor' returned to commit a similar crime in March he was arrested by the Guardia Civil.
