A Freeport doctor accused of rape and indecent assault was arraigned in the Freeport Magistrate’s Court yesterday.

Dr Gerald Mark Forbes, 46, of 58 Epsom Road, Freeport, and 45 Town Court in Nassau, appeared in Court Three before Acting Magistrate Rengin Johnson.

He was charged with one count of rape and one count of indecent assault.

Simone Brown represented Dr Forbes, who is a general practitioner.

He pleaded not guilty to the charges.

Magistrate Johnson granted $5,000 bail with one surety on the indecent assault charge, but she denied him bail on the rape charge.
