Fairfax, SC (WLTX) - A South Carolina doctor has been arrested after a patient said he groped her.

Robert Major Jones, 56, of Orangeburg is charged with assault and battery in the second degree.

State Law Enforcement Division agents say the incident took place on November 4, 2011 at Low Country Health Care System in the town of Fairfax.

An affidavit states that as he concluded an examination of the victim, Jones touched the woman on the buttocks as she tried to leave the room. The victim says she pushed Dr. Jones back and asked him what he was doing. At that point, the affidavit says Jones grabbed the woman from behind and groped her breasts.

The victim says she shoved him again, and Dr. Jones backed away from her.

Jones was booked at the Allendale County Detention Center.
