Posted: Updated:

A Meriden dentist was charged with sexually assaulting one of his patients.

A woman told police that Dr. Jeffrey Krahling did things that were inappropriate and made her feel violated.

Krahling, who is a dentist in Meriden, was arrested after police said he sexually assaulting one of his patients.

Eyewitness News went to his Meriden office on Thursday, but the station was told he wasn't there.

Police arrested Krahling after investigating a complaint. In the complaint, an unidentified woman went to see Krahling to have a permanent crown put on one of her teeth.

According to the arrest warrant, the woman said when she tilted her chair back “Krahling's legs were wrapped around her head" while she was leaning back in the chair.

The arrest warrant states that "Krahling began grinding on top of her head" and that "she could feel Krahling's penis on her head during the procedure"

The woman also told police Krahling was "breathing heavily and moaning.”

Police said they wanted the doctor to come in for an interview, but his attorney told them Krahling would not be cooperating with the investigation.

According to Meriden police, Krahling has a history. Police said he has five different battery convictions and arrests in Ocean City and Bowie, Maryland. He's due in court later this month.

Eyewitness News was told the Connecticut Licensing Board is currently looking into the Meriden incident.
