MIDLAND -- In a court appearance Wednesday it was announced that new victims had come forward following the indictment of a Midland doctor.

At the appearance in the 441st District Court, Assistant District Attorney Bonita Tribble announced that a total of six new victims had come forward in the case.

During the hearing, Dr. Mohsin Syed requested that he be allowed to go to Canada to visit his mother for her 75th birthday.

Judge Rodney Satterwhite denied the request. The court now holds Syed's passport.

In December of 2016 an alleged sexual assault case was reported to the Midland Police Department.

An indictment obtained by CBS 7 states that Syed is alleged to have used his finger to rape a patient.

It also states that Syed made the patient submit and participate by exploiting their emotional dependency on him and by use of physical force.

Syed was arrested on Thursday, June 1.

His bond was set at $50,000 and he later bonded out on the same day.

Following the indictment the Midland Police Department asked that anyone with information on the case or anyone who would like to file a report contact their department.
