MERIDEN, CT (WFSB) -

A dentist in Meriden accused of sexually assaulting a number of patients is now facing more charges.

Dr. Jeffrey Krahling was arrested on Friday, accused of stalking and burglary.

Krahling was already facing charges after police said he sexually abusing three female patients. Now he's accused  stalking, harassing and vandalizing the home of one of his victims.

In court on Monday, a victim told Eyewitness News she was sexually assaulted by Krahling during a medical procedure last year, adding police reached out to her recently, saying they believed the dentist was behind a string of suspicious incidents.

"They showed up at my address trying to warn me that he's going around to the victims, trying to break windows and to just keep a lookout for a dark SUV," the victim said.

Meriden police arrested Krahling after they said his pick-up truck was spotted leaving the area of a reported burglary in progress, adding he nearly hit a police cruiser while trying to get away.

He was arrested and charged with criminal mischief, violating a restraining order, tampering with an intimidating a witness, along with others.

Krahling wasn't along when police arrested him. His wife was with him, and now she's facing charges as well. His two young children were in the pick-up truck at the time as well.

Meriden police believe he's behind similar incidents. 

In November, the victim had red paint poured over her driveway and front porch. Then, a rear sliding door and window were smashed.

On Thursday, the house was tagged with black spray paint.

When police arrested Krahling on Friday, they said he had a hammer with him and the lids to two red paint cans.

Court documents said "It is my belief that Krahling's actions were an attempt to intimidate (name redacted) through a series of targeted actions to cause her alarm and fear. The three aforementioned witness intimidation case investigations remain active and I will be applying for arrest warrants for Krahling in those incidents soon."

His license has been suspended and was no longer allowing him to practice in the state.

He is being held on a $500,000 bond. If he makes bail, he will be required to wear a gps monitoring device.

A Connecticut State Police K9 assisted in the arrest of Krahling on Friday.
