Ravi K. Veluri, 58, is accused of inappropriately touching a female patient on July 15 at the Family Care Medical Center at 4810 Beauregard Street in the Alexandria section of the county, police said. They said the 24-year-old woman reported the alleged incident after the visit.


Authorities said further investigation led detectives to obtain the warrant against Veluri. Police asked that any other patient who thinks they may have been victimized come forward. Authorities said the practice is also known as "Urgent Care," or in Spanish, as "Clínica Español."

Veluri, of the 8300 block of Upper Spring Lane in Annandale, is 5 feet 8 inches tall and weighs about 175 pounds, police said. He has brown eyes and dark-colored hair with gray mixed in.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Veluri is asked to contact Crime Solvers by phone at 1-866-411-TIPS(8477), e-mail at www.fairfaxcrimesolvers.org or text “TIP187” plus your message to CRIMES(274637). A $100 to $1,000 cash reward will be paid for information that leads to an arrest.

This man needs a good attorney. Maybe he was giving the 24 year old woman a full check-up at no additional charge? This man is innocent until proven guilty by Fairfax's finest. Nowadays it doesn't pay to have any kind of job where you have to come in contact with women or children.

Poor man. Innocent until proven guilty. This man has better things to do than touch some woman. I hope she understands the gravity of her accusations. She probably wants some money.

If he was innocent he wouldn't be hiding from the law.

Doctor Feel Good? Not to make light of this but its possible the Doc was simply following an examination procedure and didn't brief the patient beforehand.

as the report shows he was not hiding but visiting family and reported himself with an attorney upon return. It is unfortunate that journalists have to sensationalize news to sell. These days doctors cannot perform their duties because they will be sued either way for not performing a thorough check up. He should have 100 people watching while performing the examination.
