CLAREMONT, N.H. (WCAX) - Police say a New Hampshire doctor is accused of sexually assaulting a patient.

Claremont Police say the investigation into Dr. Thomas Marks, 70, of Newbury, started in mid-December when a patient reported being sexually assaulted during an office visit. Marks is an orthopedic surgeon at the Valley Regional Hospital.

Police arrested Marks Tuesday at his office. According to court documents, he was caught on a wire worn by a patient. Investigators now want to know if there are any other victims.

“That’s certainly going to be part of the investigation. We are going to look into the background of him s a provider, as a person. We would be interested in talking to anyone who has relevant information about this case or others,” said Claremont Police Chief Brent Wilmot.

In a statement to WCAX, a spokesperson for Valley Regional Hospital said they are fully cooperating with the investigation and that Marks was immediately placed on leave.

Marks is being held at the Sullivan County House of Correction and is due in court on Wednesday. Potential charges include sexual assault, aggravated felonious sexual assault, and attempt to commit aggravated felonious sexual assault.
