Bronx dentist accused of raping a 15-year-old girl at his apartment
Police have arrested a Bronx dentist for allegedly raping a 15-year-old girl.
Police say Anthony Richardson, 46, raped the girl on Tuesday at his Fordham Hill Oval apartment while he was helping her with her homework. The teen is reportedly the daughter of one of Richardson's friends.
According to police, this is not the first time Richardson has been accused of rape. In, 1995 he was arrested for allegedly raping a woman while she was under anesthesia. He was acquitted in that case due to lack of evidence. Richardson was also accused of rape in 1987 and 1989 but was acquitted.
Residents at the Fordham Hill Oval say they are shocked and a little worried for their safety. They say the news puts a negative spotlight on their gated community.
Richardson, who has a dental practice in the Grand Concourse and is the father of the three kids, is in police custody waiting to be arraigned on first-degree rape charges.
